The Wisdom of God. 1 Cor. 1. 24; Eph. 3. 9-11

I. Watts                                                 C.M.

1
The Lord, descending from above,
Invites his children near,
While power, and truth, and boundless love
Display their glories here.

2
Here, in thy gospel’s wondrous frame,
Fresh wisdom we pursue;
A thousand angels learn thy name,
Beyond whate’er they knew.

3
Thy name is writ in fairest lines;
Thy wonders here we trace;
Wisdom through all the mystery shines,
And shines in Jesus’ face.

4
The law its best obedience owes
To our incarnate God;
And thy revenging justice shows
Its honours in his blood.

5
But still the lustre of thy grace
Our warmer thoughts employs;
Gilds the whole scene with brighter rays,
And more exalts our joys.
