1 What love Thou hast bestowed on us,
We thank Thee from our heart;
Our Father, we would worship Thee
And praise for all Thou art.
2 Thy heart Thou hast revealed to us,
Made known th’ eternal will;
Within the Son Thou hast come forth,
Thy purpose to fulfill.
3 Thou gavest Thy beloved Son
In love to come and die,
That we may be Thy many sons,
As heirs with Him, made nigh.
4 Through Him we have Thy very life
And Thou our Father art;
Thy very nature, all Thyself,
Thou dost to us impart.
5 Thy Spirit into ours has come
That we may “Abba” cry;
Of Spirit born, with Spirit sealed,
To be transformed thereby.
6 The many sons to glory brought
Is Thine eternal goal,
And to Thy Son’s own image wrought,
Thou wilt conform the whole.
7 Throughout Thy transformation work
Thou dost direct each one,
From glory unto glory bring
Until the work is done.
8 What love Thou, Father, hast bestowed;
We’ll ever grateful be;
We’ll worship Thee forevermore
And praise unceasingly.

We often sing this hymn at the Lord's table and I enjoy it very much. I find that when the Lord, His Person and His economy, are the centre of our praises and our prayers, wow, the meeting is so enjoyable! The content of this hymn is so rich and it really leads us to worship the Father for His love and His wonderful economy. I also find the tune is helpful in leading me to touch the content of the hymn and exercise my spirit. Praise You dear Father for Your eternal purpose and Your wonderful economy! Praise You for revealing Your heart to us and making Your will known to us. Thank You Father that it is through imparting Your very life and Person into us that You will gain what You are after. Thank You that only through Your life can Your purpose be accomplished. What wisdom! Thank You for including us in Your wonderful purpose. Throughout Thy transformation work, Thou dost direct each one, from glory unto glory bring until the work is done! Hallelujah!
