144 FABER'S HYMNS.
And now the Father keeps Himself, In patient and forbearing love,
To be His creature's heritage In that undying life above.
Oh wonderful, oh passing thought, The love that God hath had for thee,
Spending on thee no less a sum Than the Undivided Trinity!
Father, and Son, and Holy Ghost, Exhausted for a thing like this,—
The world's whole government disposed For one ungrateful creature's bliss !
What hast thou done for God, my soul?
Look o'er thy misspent years and see ; Cry from thy worse than nothingness,
Cry for His mercy upon thee.
Think well how Jesus trusts Himself
Unto our childish love, As though by His free ways with us
Our earnestness to prove.
