12                       FABER'S HYMNS.
Oh Thou art very great To set Thyself so far above!
But we partake of Thine estate, Established in Thy strength and in Thy love; That love hath made eternal room for me In the sweet vastness of its own eternity.
Oh Thou art very meek To overshade Thy creatures thus:
Thy grandeur is the shade we seek; To be eternal is Thy use to us : Ah Blessed God ! what joy it is to me To lose all thought of self in Thine eternity.
Self-wearied, Lord! I come; For I have lived my life too fast:
Now that years bring me nearer home Grace must be slowly used to make it last; When my heart beats too quick I think of Thee. And of the leisure of Thy long eternity.
Farewell, vain joys of earth ! Farewell, all love that is not His!
Dear God! be Thou my only mirth, Thy majesty my single timid bliss ! Oh in the bosom of eternity Thou dost not weary of Thyself, nor we of Thee !
