1 Love divine, all loves 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,
pure, unbounded love impart!
Visit us with your salvation,
enter ev'ry trembling heart.
2 Breathe, O breathe your loving Spirit
into ev'ry troubled breast;
let us all in you inherit,
let us find the promised rest.
Take away the love of sinning;
Alpha and Omega be;
end of faith, as its beginning,
set our hearts at liberty.
3 Come, Almighty to deliver,
let us all your life receive;
suddenly return, and never,
never more 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.
4 Finish, then, your new creation;
pure and spotless let us be;
let us see your great salvation
perfectly restored and free.
Changed from glory into glory,
till in heaven we take our place,
till we cast our crowns before you,
lost in wonder, love, and praise.
