Abba, Father! we adore Thee

Abba, Father! we adore Thee,
  Humbly now our homage pay;
’Tis Thy children’s bliss to know Thee,
  None but children “Abba” say.
This high honor we inherit,
  Thy free gift through Jesus’ blood;
God the Spirit, with our spirit,
  Witnesseth we’re sons of God.
Thine own purpose gave us being,
  When in Christ, in that vast plan,
Thou in Christ didst choose Thy people
  E’en before the world began.
Oh, what love Thou, Father, bore us!
  Oh, how precious in Thy sight!
When to Thine own Son Thou gav’st us,
  To Thy Son, Thy soul’s delight.
Though our nature’s fall in Adam
  Shut us wholly out from God,
Thine eternal counsel brought us
  Nearer still, through Jesus’ blood;
For in Him we found redemption,
  Grace and glory in Thy Son;
O the height and depth of mercy!
  Christ and His redeemed are one.
Hence, through all the changing seasons,
  Trouble, sickness, sorrow, woe,
Nothing changeth Thine affections,
  Love divine shall bring us through;
Soon shall all Thy blood-bought children
  Round the throne their anthems raise,
And, in songs of rich salvation,
  Shout to Thine eternal praise.

Dr Robert Hawker was born at Exeter, England, in 1753. He had been originally educated for the medical profession, but in 1778 became a minister in the Church of Charles the Martyr at Plymouth. He was there until he went to be with the Lord April 6, 1827, at the age of 74.

Dr. Hawker was well known as a controversial and theological writer, but his name is associated with hymns, especially “Lord dismiss us with Thy blessing" and other hymns. His verses have a precious way to bring us before the Lord Jesus and the Father which this particular hymn does do well. He also published a collection of Sunday School hymns.
