1 Love divine, all loves excelling,
joy of heaven, to earth come down:
fix in us Your humble dwelling,
all Your faithful mercies crown.
Jesus, You are all compassion,
boundless love that makes us whole;
Visit us with Your salvation,
enter every trembling soul.
2 Come, almighty to deliver,
let us all Your life receive:
suddenly return, and never,
nevermore Your temples leave:
You we would be always blessing,
serve You as Your hosts above,
pray and praise You without ceasing,
glory in Your perfect love.
