1026. T. 598.

3. In this sepulchral Eden,

The tree of life I've found, BELOVED, white and ruddy,

Here is my treasure hidden, 150i of thousands none so fair;

I tread on hallow'd ground; T I with thy wounded body

Ye sick, ye faint and weary, No beauty can compare;

Howe'er your

ailments vary, Here to thy care consigned, Creep hither and make sure Within thy tomb enshrined,

Of a most perfect cure.
Might but my body lie ;
To thee my soul would fly.

4. Here lies in death's embraces 2. But while on earth I tarry.

My Bridegroom, Lord and God; Wrapt in this mortal vest,

With awe my soul retraces Within thy sanctuary

The bloody, dol'rous road, My troubled soul finds rest. That leads to this last station; 2017 Admit no strange affections,

Here in sweet meditation

0) But 'midst all imperfections, I'll dwell by day and night, pour Might in my looks be seen,

Till faith is chang'd to sight. That I with God have been.
