Lyrics

Lord, you were rich beyond all splendour,
yet, for love’s sake, became so poor;
leaving your throne in glad surrender,
sapphire-paved courts for stable floor:
Lord, you were rich beyond all splendour,
yet, for love’s sake, became so poor.

You are our God beyond all praising,
yet, for love’s sake, became a man;
stooping so low, but sinners raising
Heav’n-wards, by your eternal plan:
you are our God beyond all praising,
yet, for love’s sake, became a man.

Lord, you are love beyond all telling,
Saviour and King, we worship you;
Immanuel, within us dwelling,
make us and keep us pure and true:
Lord, you are love beyond all telling,
Saviour and King, we worship you.
