CHRIST, whose glory fills the skies, That

By A Collection of Hymns

      7s & 6s. Ezekiel xxxiv. 29, 30.
      1 CHRIST, whose glory fills the skies,
      That famous Plant thou art:
      Tree of Life eternal, rise
      In every longing heart!
      Bid us find the food in thee
      For which our deathless spirits pine,
      Fed with immortality,
      And filled with love divine.

      2 Long we have our burden borne,
      Our own unfaithfulness,
      Object of the heathen's scorn,
      Who mocked our scanty grace;
      Jesus, our reproach remove;
      Let sin no more thy people shame!
      Show us rooted in thy love,
      In life and death the same.

      3 In thy spotless people show
      Thy power and constancy;
      Give us thus to feel and know
      Our fellowship with thee:
      Give us all thy mind to express,
      And blameless in our Lord to abide,
      Transcripts of thy holiness,
      Thy fair, unspotted bride.
