Hymn: TLH 351, st. 1,2: Love Divine, all Love Excelling

Hymnary.org Organ Audio


1. Love Divine, all love excelling, 
Joy of heaven, to earth come down, 
Fix in us Thy humble dwelling, 
All Thy faithful mercies crown. 
Jesus, Thou art all compassion, 
Pure, unbounded love Thou art; 
Visit us with Thy salvation, 
Enter every trembling heart. 

2. Breathe, oh, breathe Thy loving Spirit 
Into every troubled breast; 
Let us all in Thee inherit, 
Let us find the promised rest. 
Take away the love of sinning; 
Alpha and Omega be; 
End of faith as its beginning, 
Set our hearts at liberty.
