2 How vast is here display'd,
In brightest form array'd,
His love's dimension:
O grace, beyond the ken
Of angels or of men,
Past comprehension.
3 How should I, slaughter'd
Who dust and ashes am, [Lamb,
A worm, and earthy,
To taste such boundless grace,
And have so high a place
Be counted worthy.
4. Ah, why am I so blest,
That such a heavenly guest
My house will enter?
Dare I, thou highest good,
To taste thy flesh and blood,
A sinner, venture?
5. Upon thy call I'm here;
I venture to draw near,
For thou art gracious:
I on thy word rely,
Thou wilt my soul supply
With food delicious.

6 Grant me but this firm faith,
That with thee by thy death
I am united: -
To cheer and make me whole,
Thou hast my sin-sick soul
Freely invited.

7 Thy body slain for me, My food, my foretaste be Of heaven's fruition; And by its power may I, While I the world deny, Gain there admission.

8 Pervade, thou precious flood
Of Christ's all-healing blood,
My soul and senses:
And to my needy heart
Life, peace, and health impart:
Thus heaven commences.

9 Lord, of thy wondrous love
That brought thee from above
Thou gav'st this token:
O may it constantly
Unite my heart to thee
In bonds unbroken.

10 Didst thou thyself devise
To be my sacrifice,
My Lord, my Treasure?
Grant that continually
To live alone for thee
May be my pleasure.

11 Cause me, who now am thine,
As branch to thee the Wine
To cleave unceasing:
Receiving strength and juice,
That I may fruit produce
To thee well-pleasing.

For joy, that we're brought nigh to 2 Okeepthy banquet, Lord, with me,

By Jesus' blood; For grief, that we so little honour Afford to him in our demeanour;

[ocr errors]

A sinner poor and needy, Since thou invit'st me graciously, “Come, all things now are ready.”

Yea, ev'n oppose his gracious views 3 I open heart and soul to thee,

And purposes with us: Ah, then in faith we sigh, And to our Saviour cry:

[ocr errors]

Dispense a blessing now,
And give absolving grace:
Lord, leave with us thy peace.

Lord Jesus, to receive thee; For thee I long most ardently, O may I never leave thee.
