O Lord, All Glorious, Life of Life

 

O Lord, All Glorious, Life of Life

O Lord, all glorious, Life of life!
To Thee we raise our grateful song;
Lift up our souls from thoughts of self
To Thee, to Whom all lives belong.

Below all depths Thy mercy lies,
Above all heights Thy love ascends;
Thy providence our path surrounds,
Thy watchful care each step attends.

From Thee all good desires proceed,
All holy thoughts we gain from Thee;
The good we do is Thine alone,
Thine shall our heart’s thanksgiving be.

Words: Au­thor un­known, in Har­mo­ny in Praise, 1890.

  1. From Thee all good desires proceed,
    All holy thoughts we gain from Thee;
    The good we do is Thine alone,
    Thine shall our heart’s thanksgiving be.

    These words are so true. There is nothing good that we can do apart from Him.

    I hope you have a lovely Sunday Ellen B.
