1   God’s eternal purpose
      Is to join with man,
    Causing man, His vessel,
      To be born again,
    His own life imparting,
      Filling to the brim;
    Man may thus express Him,
      And be one with Him.
2   God in His own image
      Hath created man,
    That he may be able
      To fulfill His plan;
    That he may receive Him
      As the tree of life
    To become His fulness
      As to man the wife.
3   In His life’s rich flowing
      Man will be transformed
    Into precious substance
      And to Him conformed.
    Thus will man be builded
      As His counterpart,
    Thus to be His dwelling,
      Satisfy His heart.
4   Tis the holy city,
      New Jerusalem;
    With His saints God mingles,
      Makes His home with them.
    He becomes their content,
      His expression they;
    They shall share His glory,
      One with Him for aye.
5   He’s the very center,
      Ruling on the throne;
    By His life the power,
      Saints are kept in one.
    By His light of glory,
      They are kept in light,
    Harmony enjoying
      In divine delight.
6   He’s their living water,
      And their food supply;
    All their thirst and hunger
      He doth satisfy.
    He’s for them the temple,
      In Himself they live,
    In His constant presence
      Worship ever give.
