This setting is based on the hymn Love Divine, All Loves Excelling by Charles Wesley and John Zundel.

 

Love divine, all loves excelling, Joy of heaven to earth come down;

Fix in us thy humble dwelling; All thy faithful mercies crown!

Jesus, Thou art all compassion, Pure unbounded love Thou art;

Visit us with Thy salvation; Enter every trembling heart.

 

Breathe, O breathe Thy loving Spirit, Into every troubled breast!

Let us all in Thee inherit; Let us find that promised rest.

Take away our bent to sinning; Alpha and Omega be;

End of faith, as its Beginning, Set our hearts at liberty.

 

Come, Almighty to deliver, Let us all Thy life 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.

 

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, 'Til in heaven we take our place,

'Til we cast our crowns before Thee, Lost in wonder, love, and praise.
