Gracious Lord, Thy name "I AM" is,

Precious name, how rich and full 'tis,

All-inclusive, faithful too 'tis —

All, we need, Thou art!


Thou the Son, the Father in Thee,

As the Spirit now indwell me,

That the riches of Thyself we

May experience.


Thou the Temple for God's dwelling,

Thou the Father's life e'er telling;

We in Thee with joy excelling

Face to face see Him.


Thou the Lamb and Thou the Bridegroom,

For the bride Thou sufferedst sin's doom,

Wounded, crucified in our room;

Thus we find our rest.


Thou art wisdom and the way, Lord,

Thou our lives dost plan each day, Lord,

Grace to us Thou dost convey, Lord,

In Thy path to walk.


Pure and holy, righteous Thou art,

One with God, well-pleasing His heart,

Thou within to us dost impart

Harmony with God.


Thou art life and Thou art light, Lord,

Death hast swallowed, banished night, Lord,

Thou hast quickened, given sight, Lord;

We are now set free.


Thou art resurrection power,

Thou the conqu'ror in hell's hour;

Thou dost us with might empower

Over all to reign.


Living water, food supply, Lord,

Thou Thyself art, and didst die, Lord,

All our want to satisfy, Lord;

Now we feast on Thee.


Thou the Shepherd and Physician,

Thou hast healed our sick condition;

Comfort, guide, protect — Thy mission;

Thou dost care for us.


Priest and King Thou art fore'er, Lord;

Into God we're brought, and there, Lord,

Thine authority we share, Lord;

What an honored place!


Thou our Hope and our Redemption,

Thou wilt change our old creation,

Make of Thee a duplication,

Thus Thyself express.


Thou our Joy, our Peace, our Glory;

Truth, and Grace, the Rock, the Life-tree,

Building, Mountain, Sun, and Shield — we

Ne'er can tell it all.


What Thou art — eternal, boundless,

Full and perfect, rich, exhaustless —

Meets our need to utter fullness

And from us o'erflows.
