a joy to thee

the lord your god is in your midst,
a mighty one who will save;
he will rejoice over you with gladness;
he will quiet you by his love;
he will exult over you with loud singing.
{zephaniah 3:17}

made for thyself, o god!
made for thy love, thy service, thy delight;
made to show forth thy wisdom, grace and might;
made for thy praise, whom veiled archangels laud;
o strange and glorious thought, that we may be
a joy to thee.
