365. Love Divine, All Love Excelling

1 Love divine, all love excelling,
Joy of heav'n, to earth come down,
Fix in us your humble dwelling,
All your faithful mercies crown.
Jesus, you are all compassion,
Boundless mercy from above.
Visit us with benediction;
Comfort us with heav'nly love.

2 Take away our love of sinning;
Alpha and Omega be.
End of faith as its beginning,
Set our hearts at liberty.
We would ever seek your blessing,
Serve you as your hosts above,
Pray and praise you without ceasing,
Glory in your perfect love.

3 Sanctify your new creation;
Pure and spotless let us be.
Let us trust your great salvation,
Won for us on Calvary,
Till we lay our crowns before you,
Till in heav'n we take our place,
Till in glory we adore you,
Lost in wonder, love, and praise.
