The promis’d Blesling's come :
CHR 197, the Woman's conqu’ring Seed,
See the bright Morning.ftar!
Late in deepest Darkness, rise,
The dazzling Shechinah!
Now in Flesh he ftoops to dwell,
The Presence of the LORD:
God by highest Heav'n confeít,
Th’ Almighty's Fellow Thou! 'Thou the Father's only Son;
Pleas'd He ever is in Thee, Juft, and holy, Thou alone,
Full of Grace and Truch--for me,
JESUS, the great I AM?
Empty'd of all, but Love :
God vouchsaf'd a Worm t'appear,
His own receiv'd him not :
Out cait and despis’d of Men,
Thy humble State I sing ;
Hail derided Majesty,
Galp'd my faint, expiring Soul, Wine and Oil thy Love pour'd in,
Clos'd my Wounds, and made me whole.
Divine, engrafted Word!
Thee the Resurrection prov'd :
I live, no more to die :
Witness of thy empty Tomb,
Hymn to CHRIST.
The never ceasing Song !
His be all my happy Days, Praise my ev'ry Hour employ,
Ev'ry Breath be spent in Praise.
His would I wholly be
Who liv'd and dy'd for me : Grief was all his Life below,
Pain, and Poverty, and Loss : Mine the Sins that bruis'd him so,
Scourg'd and nail'd him to the Cross.
A spotless Criminal :
Blackend with Imputed Sin, Man ko save his Blood he spilt,
Dy'd, to make the Sinner clean.
The LORD our Righteoulma/s!
This the Saviour's frange Deliga,
The Gift is come to All :
just in One we all are made, CHRIST the Law fulfill'd alone, Dy'd for All, for All obey'd
His Death, his Life is mine.
Free from Sin, and more than free; Guiltless, fince for me he dy'd, Righteous, fince he liv'd for me!
Say'd to the utmost now.
Who thy Wisdom's Stores can tell : Knowledge infinite is Thine,
All thy Ways unsearchable !
ORD, not unto Me
(The Whole I disclaim) All Glory to Thee
Thro' Jesus's Name! Thy Gifts and thy Graces
Pour'd down from above, Demand all our Praises, Our Thanks, and our Love,
II. Thy Faithfulnefs, LORD,
Each Moment we find, So true to thy Word,
So loving and kind; Thy Mercy fo tender
To all the lost Race, The foulest Offender May turn, and find Grace.
III. The Mercy I feel,
To others I shew, I set to my Seal
That Jesus is true ; Ye all may find Favour
Who come at his Call ; O! come to my Saviour,
His Grace is for all.
