O love invisible, yet infinite - Divine Love
(Horatius Bonar/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Divine Love.

1. O love invisible, yet infinite,
  I cast myself into thy sure embrace;
O light of God, shine through this cloudy night;
  O God of light, unveil thy gladdening face!

2. Happy in knowing thee, my Lord and God;
  happy in finding thee, my treasure true;
happy in following thee through ill and good,
  in toiling for thee, and in suffering too.

3. Clear-written on the cross I read thy love;
  thy love is there, and there thy power I see,
the power that comes with healing from above,
  that brings to us a heavenly liberty.

4. What is the love to me without the cross?
  And what the cross without the love, O Lord?
All sin and weakness I; it is the cross
  that to my broken soul doth health afford.

5. O love that passeth knowledge, thee I need!
  Pour in the heavenly sunshine, fill my heart;
scatter the cloud, the doubting, and the dread,
  the joy unspeakable to me impart.

6. O love that passeth knowledge, shine on me
  as through these sunless solitudes I wind;
brighten my path, give buoyant liberty,
  nerve for the fight, unburden and unbind.

Horatius Bonar, Hymns of Faith and Hope III, 1878, 110-111.
