Revenge the Death of Cur:st upon Siro

1.- QUESTION. . 1 O HARMLESS undefiled Lamb,

What caus'd thy wounds and pain ?
Thou knew'st no sin, thou did'st no wrong ;
What caus’d thee to be slain?

2 " Of all my wounds and anguish fore,

My pressures and complaints, And of my racking bloody death,

Your fins were instruments. 3 To you these bitter pains belong'a,"

On you they would been laid; But love to you made ine them bear,

That God's wrath might be stay’d.” 4 O monstrous fin, thou murderer!

Can I be reconcil'd
To suffer thee to lodge with me?

No more to this I'll yield. 5 I bitterly bewail my fins,

Which gave my Saviour pain :
I them abhor, and cast to door; “

They shall no more remain.
6 I'll fin pursue the Lamb that slew;

All lufts I'll crucife,
By nailing them to Jesu's cross,

. Till they expire and die.
7 Subdue my heart, O mighty king;

Let no corruption live :
Kill passion, pride, and all thy foes,

Let none of them survive.
8 Tear up the roots of inbred fin,

And let it rage no more ;
All fatan's plenishing break down,

And turn it to the door.
