Advent Day 15: Love

SUNDAY December 17, 2023

Week 3 Meditation

Thou who wast rich beyond all splendour, All for love’s
sake became poor;
Thrones for a manger didst surrender, Sapphire-paved
courts for stable floor.
Thou who wast rich beyond all splendour, All for love’s
sake became poor.

Thou who art God beyond all praising, All for love’s sake
becamest man;
Stooping so low, but sinners raising Heavenwards
by thine eternal plan.
Thou who art God beyond all praising, All for love’s sake
Becamest Man.

Thou who art love beyond all telling, Saviour and King,
we worship thee.
Emmanuel, within us dwelling, Make us what thou
wouldst have us be.
Thou who art love beyond all telling, Saviour and King,
we worship thee.

—Frank Houghton, 1934
