TLH#133 Within the Father's House

TLH#131  |  All Hymns  |  TLH#134

1. Within the Father's house
The Son hath found His home,
And to His Temple suddenly
The Lord of Life hath come.

2. The doctors of the Law
Gaze on the wondrous Child
And marvel at His gracious words
Of wisdom undefiled.

3. Yet not to them is giv'n
The mighty truth to know,
To Iift the earthly veil which hides
Incarnate God below.

4. The secret of the Lord
Escapes each human eye,
And faithful pondering hearts await
The full epiphany.

5. Lord, visit Thou our souls
And teach us by Thy grace
Each dim revealing of Thyself
With loving awe to trace,

6. Till from our darkened sight
The cloud shall pass away
And on the cleansed soul shall burst
The everlasting day,

7. Till we behold Thy face
And know as we are known
Thee, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
Co-equal Three in One.

Amen.
