Love divine, all loves excelling,
joy of heaven, to earth come down,
fix in us your humble dwelling,
all your faithful mercies crown.

Jesus, you are all compassion,
pure, unbounded love impart;
visit us with your salvation,
enter every trembling heart.

Come, almighty to deliver,
let us all your grace receive;
suddenly return, and never,
never more your temples leave.

We would always give you blessing,
serve you as your hosts above,
pray, and praise you without ceasing,
glory in your perfect love.

Finish then your new creation;
pure and spotless let us be;
let us see your great salvation,
perfect in eternity:

Changed from glory into glory
till in heaven we take our place,
there to sing salvation's story
lost in wonder, love, and praise!
