Thou art the everlasting Word,
The Father's only Son,
God manifestly seen and heard,
And heaven's beloved One.
Worthy, O Lamb of God, art Thou,
That ev'ry knee to Thee should bow!
In Thee, most perfectly expressed,
The Father's glories shine,
Of the full Deity possessed,
True image of the Infinite,
Whose essence is concealed;
Brightness of uncreated light,
The heart of God revealed.
But the high myst'ries of His name,
The creature's grasp transcend;
The Father only (glorious claim!)
The Son can comprehend.
Yet loving Thee, on whom His love
Ineffable doth rest,
Thy members all, in Thee, above,
As one with Thee are blest!
Throughout the universe of bliss,
The center Thou, and Sun,
The eternal theme of praise is this,
To heaven's beloved One.
