Lord! Accept Our Joyful Song
Lord! accept our joyful song; Power and praise to Thee belong;
We would all Thy grace record, Holy, holy, holy Lord!
Rich in glory, Thou did'st stoop, Thence is all Thy people's hope;
Thou wast poor, that we might be Rich in glory, Lord, with Thee!
When we think of love like this, Joy and shame our hearts possess;
Joy, that Thou could'st pity thus, Shame, for such returns from us.
Yet we soon the day shall see, When we shall from sin be free:
When, to Thee in glory brought, We shall serve Thee as we ought.
George F. Handel; arr. by William H. Monk
