O Perfect Love

Hymn Writer ~ Dor­o­thy F. Gur­ney

Stanza 1:

O per-fect Love, all human thought transcending,

Lowly we kneel in prayer before Thy throne,

That theirs may be the love which knows no ending,

Whom Thou forevermore dost join in one.

Stanza 2:

O per-fect Life, be Thou their full assurance,

Of tender charity and steadfast faith,

Of patient hope and quiet, brave endurance,

With childlike trust that fears nor pain nor death.

Stanza 3:

Grant them the joy which brightens earthly sorrow;

Grant them the peace which calms all earthly strife,

And to life’s day the glorious unknown morrow

That dawns upon eternal love and life.

Stanza 4:

Hear us, O Father, gracious and forgiving,

Through Jesus Christ, Thy co-eternal Word,

Who, with the Holy Ghost, by all things living

Now and to endless ages art adored.
