113. Come, dearest Lord

1 Come, dearest Lord, descend and dwell
by faith and love in ev'ry breast;
then shall we know and taste and feel
the joys that cannot be expressed.

2 Come, fill our hearts with inward strength,
make our enlargèd souls possess
and learn the height and breadth and length
of thine immeasurable grace.

3 Now to the God whose pow'r can do
more than our thoughts or wishes know,
be everlasting honours done
by all the Church, through Christ his Son.
