Eternal Father, When to Thee
Words: Hervey Doddridge Ganse
Music: Wareham | William Knapp
1. Eternal Father, when to Thee,
Beyond all worlds, by faith I soar,
Before Thy boundless majesty
I stand in silence, and adore.

2. But Savior, Thou art by my side;
Thy voice I hear, Thy face I see:
Thou art my Friend, my daily Guide;
God over all, yet God with me.

3. And Thou, great Spirit, in my heart,
Dost make Thy temple day by day;
The Holy Ghost of God Thou art,
Yet dwellest in this house of clay.

4. Blest Trinity, in Whom alone
All things created move or rest,
High in the heavens Thou hast Thy throne;
Thou hast Thy throne within my breast.
