Long years of hope and pray'r have passed away And great is thy reward upon this happy day, Thou'rt made an intimate of Him above Nay I I should rather say, master through love Of that kind God Who, on the Sacred Tree, Gave forth in pain His soul for us and thee. Master of that most just and potent God Who rules the world with an all-powerful rod; Whose voice the elements in haste obey, At whose command dark night succeeds the day. What awful power is thine! for will not He, Discarding His empyreal majesty, At thine own will, descend to earth below, And there on sinful man his gifts bestow?
