THE ETERNAL FATHER.
They flow from Thee ; They rest in Thee,
As in a Father's breast, Procession of eternal love,
Pulses of endless rest!
That They in majesty should reign
Coequal, Sire ! with Thee, But magnifies the singleness
Of Thy paternity.
Their uncreated glories, Lord !
With Thine own glory shine; Thy glory as the Father needs
That Theirs should equal Thine.
All things are equal in Thy life:
Thou joy'st to be alone, To have no sire, and yet to have
A coeternal Son.
Thy Spirit is Thy jubilee;
Thy Word is Thy delight; Thou givest Them to equal Thee
In glory and in might.
Thou art too great to keep unshared
Thy grand eternity; They have it as Thy gift to Them,
Which is no gift to Thee.
