And crushing hard my tortur'd soul,
Or tremble at the gracious hand Wring through my eyes the briny tears. That wipes away my tears? 3 Forgive my treasons, Prince of grace, 3 No! let me rather freely yield The bloody Jews were traitors too,

Shall I resist them both? Compassions dwell amidst his throne, A poor blind creature of a day, And through his inmost bowels move.
And crush' before the moth? 6 How sweet the voice of pardon sounds! 6. But ah! my inmost spirit cries, Sweet the relief to deep distress !
Still bind me to thy sway; I feel the balm that heals my wounds,
Else the next cloud,that veils my skies, And all my powers adore thy grace.
