And bear's her Maker's praise on high

Upon her artless tongue.
Fain would I rise and sing

To my Creator too;
Fain would my heart adore my King,

And give him praises due.
Descend, celestial fire,

And seize me from above !
Wrap me in flames of pure desire,

A sacrifice of love.
Let joy and worship spend.

The remnant of my days;
And to my God my soul ascend,

In sweet perfumes of praise.

The solid marbles rend.
3 'Tis done the precious ransom's paid,

“ Receive my soul !” he cries : See where he bows his sacred head

He bows his head and dies!

3 To shame our sins he blushed in blood,

He closed his eyes to show us God;
Let all the world fall down, and know

That none but God such love can show, 4 'Tis thee I love, for thee alone

I shed my tears and make my moan!
Where'er I am where'er I move,

I meet the object of my love. 5 Insatiate to his spring I fly ;

I drink, and yet am ever dry :
