vought us a
par-don! We'll praise him
a - gain when we pass over Jor - dan!
Agur, replete with blessings from above,
With essence of oubstantial good,
The Christian soul's celestial food,
Tho'nun'rou, are th' evenilnlages pasi,
And sages, fill'd with extecy, made haste,
No less enrich'd with mental light;
Immortal treasures, ever bright,
Like its great origin for ever new,
Blooming with joys immitable and true,
Hail, cor'reign Lord of Heaven's stupende us frame!
King of immeasurable space!
Circat God of love and bounddess grace!
Not only sinful man is incomplete
Even seraphims, who worship at thy feet,
For man, immers d in depths of woe,
And gloomy labyrinths below,
Aided by thy omnipotence, he gains
With endless joys; while Death's tyrannic chains
Fountain of essence tuncreate
in the eternal triune state, Primeval source of everlasting light!
Thou didst inspire the patriarchs of old,
By whom his high atchievements are foretold,
My little incense let me bring
To my Rcdeemer, Lord, and King, That glorious branch that sprang from Jesse's root!
for whom glad angels in the blest employ, Their most exalted Hallelujahs raise !
Jesus incarnate is their theme of joy; Worthy the Lamb they sing in endless praise ; For Holy is his naruc, mosi just and true his ways! Teach me th’important mysterics to scan,
Wherein I view the Son of God,
Leaving his throne and bright abode,
Unlock the treasures of the sacred word
Disclose to me the trutik its rolls record,
That's grac d by thone seraphic botes,
Which in each blissful region floats,
This day from all voluptuous thoughts be free;
Your discord end: let heavenly harmony Rule absolute within thy breast, and fill Thy soul with due submission to her Soy'reign's will ! Again, ye nether regions of the sky,
With jubilee celestial ring;
Ye morning stars together sing,
Ye distant orbs that fill th' einereal blue,
You from his word your bright cxistence drew: As circling years proclaim each glad return,
Prepare your sacred theme for ages yet unborn! Gosport.
