Father Of Heaven, Whose Love Profound – Sunday Songs

Leave a comment

Edward Cooper’s trinitarian hymn is worth featuring on Trinity Sunday.
Not too many versions available on youtube. This is one by a church choir, set to the tune RIVAULX (or Dykes).

The lyrics:
1
Father of heaven, whose love profound
a ransom for our souls hath found,
before thy throne we sinners bend,
to us thy pardoning love extend.
2
Almighty Son, incarnate Word,
our Prophet, Priest, Redeemer, Lord,
before thy throne we sinners bend,
to us thy saving grace extend.
3
Eternal Spirit, by whose breath
the soul is raised from sin and death,
before thy throne we sinners bend,
to us thy quickening power extend.
4
Thrice Holy! Father, Spirit, Son;
mysterious Godhead, Three in One,
before thy throne we sinners bend,
grace, pardon, life to us extend.
