Being of beings, God of Love,
To Thee our hearts we raise;
-Grace After Meat-
Being of beings, God of Love,
      To Thee our hearts we raise;
Thy all-sustaining power we prove,
      And gladly sing Thy praise.
Thine, wholly Thine, we pant to be;
      Our sacrifice receive;
Made, and preserved, and saved by Thee,
      To Thee ourselves we give.
Heavenward our every wish aspires:
      For all Thy mercy’s store
The sole return Thy love requires
      Is, that we ask for more.
For more we ask; we open then
      Our hearts to’ embrace Thy will:
Turn, and beget us, Lord, again,
      With all Thy fullness fill!
Come, Holy Ghost, the Saviour’s love
      Shed in our hearts abroad;
So shall we ever live, and move,
      And be, with Christ, in God.
