8. 8. 6
7 Yet, Lord, whate'er thy will may be,
We pray to be resign'd;
A Song of Praise to the Holy Three.- Rev, xix. 5
And all his glory view?
Nor guilt shall me pursue. 2 Christ loved, and chose, and ransom'd me, From sin and Satan set me free,
And wash'd me in his blood;
And brought me home to God. 3 When such a guilty wretch as I, Deserving nought but misery,
Shall in full glory be,
Through vast eternity.
I'm saved by grace divine;
Baptism.--Matt. iii, 16.
And thy great name revere;
Nor would we dare his ways despise, 2 [What Jesus doth command,
His children should obey;
And doth his sceptre sway:
Obey the precepts of her Lord.] 3 Can anything be mean,
That's worthy of my God? ?
In Jordan's swelling flood;
The path the King himself hath made? 4 Come, fill our souls with love,
With faith, and peace, and joy,
Against her God reply;
The same.--Lnke xii. 50.
We are thine, redeem'd with blood,
The same.--Ps. cxix. 32.
We would gladly thée obey,
In thy own appointed way. 3 [We, through grace, are dead indeed,
And from our old husband freed,
We would thy commandments do. 5 Thou hast claim'd us as thy bride;
Keep us near thy wounded side:
8. 7. 4.
We adore thy matchless grace; Thou hast borne our misbehaviour; Suffer'd in our wretched place;
Wrath and terror
Of a sin-avenging God;
'Tis a mystery, Only fully known to God. 3 [Yet, through grace, we know in measure,
What thy love hath for us borne,
And we hope, through thy good pleasure, To behold thee on thy throne,
And for ever, Sing the victories thou hast won.] 4 As an emblem of thy passion,
We with thee would be baptized:
May we never,
The same.-Rom. vi. 8.
JESUS, our Lord and King,
Thou art our Hope and Trust;
And of thee will we boast. 2
As sinners saved by grace,
And made alive to God,
And tread the heavenly road. 3 Thy wisdom did ordain
This solemn rite to show, How thou wast plunged in wrath and pain,
To save our souls from woe. 4 We come thy name to own,
And solemnly confess,
