O Father Make Us Like the Son

"Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be,
but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is." (1 John 3:2)

Church Reflection


1.   O Father, make us like the Son
         That we may walk as He,
      Delighting in the Law of God
         And bringing praise to Thee.

2.   Our Lord's great joy was loving God,
         Obeying His commands.
      He lived a holy, perfect life,
         Fulfill'd the Law's demands.

3.   O Father, clothe us in the Son
         His righteousness we need
      That we might be declared as "just"
         From condemnation freed.

4.   O Father, we adore the Son;
         He is our righteousness!
      For we can now obey with hearts
         Of love and thankfulness.

5.   O Father, may we love Thy Law
         And walk within its light,
      And love the Gospel that can turn
         Its rigor to delight.

6.   We long to be made like our Lord,
         Arrayed in truth and grace,
      And we long for the day when we
         Shall see Him face to face.

7.   O Father, finish in each heart
         The work that was begun.
      Prepare us for the Lord's return,
         O make us like the Son!
