Hymn #598: O perfect Love

Change to large font

1. O perfect Love, all human thought transcending,
lowly we kneel in prayer before your throne,
at theirs may be the love which knows no ending,
whom you in holy love now join in one.

2. O perfect Life, be now their full assurance
of tender charity and steadfast faith,
of patient hope and quiet brave endurance,
with childlike trust that fears nor pain nor death.

3. Grant them the joy which brightens earthly sorrow;
grant them the peace which calms all earthly strife,
and to life's day the glorious unknown morrow
that dawns upon eternal love and life.
