BENEATH the tyrant Satan's yoke
Our souls were long opprest;
Jesus, in that important hour,
His mighty arm made known;
And claim'd us for his own.
Now, freed from bondage, sin, and death,
We walk in Wisdom's ways;
In wonder, love, and praise.
Ere long, we hope with him to dwell
In yonder world above; And now we only live to tell
The riches of his love.
Ezek, xvi. 314.
ONCE perishing in blood I lay,
Creatures no help could give; But Jesus pass'd me in the way,
He saw, and bade me live,
"Though Satan still his rule maintain d,
And all his arts employ'd; ' That mighty word his rage restrain'd,
I could not be destroy d.
At length the time of love arrivd,
When I my Lord should know; Then Satan, of his pow'r deprivid,
Was forc'd to let me go.
Oh can I e'er that day forget,
When Jesus kindly spoke! “Poor soul, my blood has paid thy debt,
And now I break thy yoke.
Henceforth I take thee for my own,
And yive myself to thee;
And yield thy heart to me.”'
