“God hath revealed them … by his Spirit.” 1 Cor. 2. 10

J. Kent   C.M.

1
Great God, how deep thy counsels lie:
Supreme in power art thou;
All things to thy omniscient eye,
Are one eternal NOW.

2
Thy thoughts of peace to Israel’s race,
From everlasting flowed;
And when thou hid’st thy lovely face
Thou still art Israel’s God.

3
In ties of blood, and nothing less,
We view thee as our own;
And God the eternal Spirit bless,
Who makes the kindred known.

4
Long as the covenant shall endure,
Made by the great Three-One,
Salvation is for ever sure,
To every blood-bought son.
