HYMN CLXXXVI.

7.7.7.7

James Montgomery

The Image of God.

Father of eternal grace,

Glorify Thyself in me:

Meekly, beaming in my face,

May the world Thine image see.

Happy only in Thy love,

Poor, unfriended, or unknown,

Fix my thoughts on things above,

Stay my heart on Thee alone.

Humble, holy, all-resign'd

To Thy will,--Thy will be done;

Give me, Lord, the perfect mind

Of Thy well-belovèd Son.

190

Counting gain and glory loss,

May I tread the path He trod,

Die with Jesus on the cross,

Rise with Him to Thee, my God!
