What sorrows I sustain ;
There forever to abide !
All the heavenly host adore thee,

How grace decays, and comfort dies, Seated at thy Father's side :

And leaves my heart in pain. There for sinners thou art pleading : 3 He knows what arguments I'd take,

There thou dost our place prepare; To wrestle with my God; Ever for us interceding,

I'd plead for his own mercy's sake, Till in glory we appear.

And for my Saviour's blood.
