CXVIII. The Names and Titles
of Christ, from several Scriptures. I T IS from the treafures of his word,
1 I borrow titles for my Lord; Nor art, nor nature, can supply Sufficient forms of majesty.
2 Bright image of the Father's face,
Shining with undiminilh'd rays;
The heir and partner of his-throne.
Writes his own name upon his thigh :
And breaks the nations with his rod.
The Lamb resents his injur'd love,
Awakes his wrath without delay,
Light of the world, and life of men ;
6 With tender in his heart, .
7 At length the judge his throne 'ascends,
Divides the rebels from his friends ;
