800. My Father divine

Author: Charles Wesley 1707-88

My father divine,
by your loving design
I am yours, and I know that my Jesus is mine;
in the sacrificed Lamb
full of comfort I am
and my heart it will dance to the sound of your name.

2. True pleasures abound
in the glorious sound
and whoever has found it, has paradise found.
My Jesus to know
and to feel his blood flow-
this is life everlasting and heaven below.

3. Yet onward I haste
to the heavenly feast;
that, that is the fulness; but this is the taste!
And this I shall prove
till you take me above
to the heaven of heavens in Jesus’s love.
