    Verse 1
    Love divine, all loves excelling,
    Joy of heaven to earth come down;
    Fix in us Thy humble dwelling;
    All Thy faithful mercies crown:
    Jesu, Thou art all compassion,
    Pure, unbounded love Thou art;
    Visit us with Thy salvation;
    Enter every trembling heart.

    Verse 2
    Come, almighty to deliver,
    Let us all Thy grace receive;
    Suddenly return and never,
    Never more Thy temples leave:
    Thee we would be always blessing,
    Serve Thee as Thy hosts above,
    Pray and praise Thee, without ceasing,
    Glory in Thy perfect love.

    Verse 3
    Finish then Thy new creation;
    Pure and spotless let us be.
    Let us see Thy great salvation
    Perfectly restored in Thee;
    Changed from glory into glory,
    Till in heaven we take our place,
    Till we cast our crowns before Thee,
    Lost in wonder, love, and praise.
