Glory of the Father’s Face

Glory of the Father’s face!
Fountain deep of love and grace!
Who, Lord, can repay Thee thus,
As Thou gav’st thyself for us?

What to Thee shall we repay,
Who for us didst bleed and die,
When Thou shalt the question make,
“What have you done for my sake?”

Hard in heart, in action weak,
Lord, Thy grace divine we seek:
Set us from our bondage free;
Draw us, and we follow Thee.

-Henry Alford
