       C
Love divine, all loves excelling,
C/E    F                    C
Joy of heaven to earth come down:
       G/B           Am
Fix in us Thy humble dwelling,
C/E     F       C/G   G   C    F
All Thy faithful mercies crown.

Jesus, Thou art all compassion;
C/E    F                 C
Pure unbounded love Thou art;

Visit us with Thy salvation,
C/E    F     C/G   G   C
Enter  every trembling heart.

Come, Almighty to deliver,
       F              C
Let us all Thy life receive;

Suddenly return, and never,
     Dm               F/G
Nevermore Thy temples leave.

Let us see Thy great salvation,
C/E    F     C/G    G  C
Perfectly restored  in Thee:
             Gm         Dm
Changed from glory into glory,
        F                  C
Till in heaven we take our place,
        Gm                F
Till we cast our crowns before Thee,
        Dm      F    G7sus4   Am      D
Lost in wonder, love and      praise,
        Dm      C/G    G   C
Lost in wonder, love   and praise.

Changed from glory into glory,

Till in heaven we take our place,
        Gm                F
Till we cast our crowns before Thee,
        Dm      F    G7sus4   Am      D
Lost in wonder, love and      praise,
        Dm      C/G    G   C   
Lost in wonder, love   and praise.

Love divine all loves excelling
Joy of heaven to earth come down
Fix in us Thy humble dwelling
All Thy faithful mercies crown
Jesus Thou art all compassion
Pure unbounded love Thou art
Visit us with Thy salvation
Enter every trembling heart

Come Almighty to deliver
Let us all Thy life receive
Suddenly return and never
Never-more Thy temples leave
Thee we would be always blessing
Serve Thee as Thy hosts above
Pray and praise Thee without ceasing
Glory in Thy perfect love

Finish then Thy new creation
Pure and spotless let us be
Let us see Thy great salvation
Perfectly restored in Thee
Changed from glory into glory
Till in heaven we take our place
Till we cast our crowns before Thee
Lost in wonder love and praise
