Hymn 151 (1st tune)Play music
1. Lord of all being throned afar,
Thy glory flames from sun and star:
Centre and soul of every sphere,
Yet to each seeking heart how near!
2 Sun of our life, Thy quick'ning ray
Sheds on our path the glow of day;
Star of our hope, Thy softened light
Cheers the long watches of the night.
3 Our midnight is Thy smile withdrawn,
Our noontide is Thy gracious dawn,
Our rainbow arch, Thy mercy 's sign:
All. save the clouds of sin, are Thine.
4 Lord of all life, below, above,
'Whose light is truth, whose warmth is love,
Before Thy ever glorious throne
We ask no lustre of our own.
5 Grant us Thy truth to make us free,
And kindling hearts that bum for Thee,
Lit by Thy word with heavenly flame,
Whose glow shall glorify Thy name.
