O shine upon my frozen breast; With sacred love my beart inspire,

Let me thy hidden sweetness taste. 3 I see thy garments roll'd in blood,

Thy streaming head, thy hands, thy side; All bail, thou suff'ring, conqu’ring God!

Now man shall live, for God hath died. 4 0 killin me this rebel sin,

And triumph o'er my willing breast! Restore thine image, Lord, therein,

And lead me to thy Father's rest. 5 Let earthly love be far away:

Saviour, be thou my love alone; No more may mine usurp the sway;

Ia me thy only will be done.

All things for thee I count but loss;
My sole desire, my constant aim,
Dy only glory, be thy cross.
