Lord, you were rich beyond all splendour

Lord, you were rich beyond all splendour,
yet, for love’s sake, became so poor;
thrones for a manger did surrender,
sapphire-paved courts for stable floor:
Lord, you were rich beyond all splendour,
yet, for love’s sake, became so poor.

2. Lord, you are God beyond all praising,
yet, for love’s sake, became a man;
stooping so low, but sinners raising
heavenwards by your eternal plan:
Lord, you are God beyond all praising,
yet, for love’s sake, became a man.

3. Lord, you are love beyond all telling,
Saviour and King, we worship you;
Immanuel, within us dwelling,
make us and keep us pure and true:
Lord, you are love beyond all telling,
Saviour and King, we worship you.
