That we may praise thee with delight
Remarks on the great Love of GOD as displayed to mankind.
Through Jefus's grace,
2 The vileft may fee
How full and how free This love was display'd" when he pray'd on the tree.
3 Grim death to invade,
Atonement he made,
And bore all our fins, which upon him were laid' !
5 Amazing what love
4 Though 'twas with much pain
Our peace to regain,
In triumph o'er death, he the monster hath flain!
His bowels doth move!
He calls upon alla men falvation to prove.
6 By faith then draw near,
And pray without fear;

7 He anfwers by fire, The humble defire,
And freely bestows what poor finners requires
8 We therefore attend;
O God now defcend,—
Confume, and for ever of fin make an end.
God commendeth his Love to Sinners.
OD, fully to prove
Commendeth it to us in Chrift from above.
3 That we might obtain
God's favour again,
This lover of finners for finners was flain".
4 What spirit that fell,
Or feraph can tell,
The pain he endured to fave us from hell?
5 Lo! ftill at God's throne
His blood doth atone,
And makes interceffions for finners alone.
2 While finners we were
In doubt and in fear,
With boundless compaffion the Saviour drew near.
6 Aftonishing grace!
That God fhould embrace,
And give fuch large bleffings unto a loft race.
7 Sure, Lord, it is meet
To fall at thy feet,
This wonder of wonders with joy to repeat !

8 Our free facrifice
Of thanks now fhall rife:
With angels we'll echo thy praife through the fkies.
For freedom from Sin and fitness for Heaven.
LORD, fet us free,
For long we have lived in captivity.
2 Now break off our chains, And purge out the stains
Of fin, and deftroy all its curfed remains..
Could we but believe
We all fhould receive
Thy Spirit, to help us obedient to live..
4 We therefore refign Ourselves to be thine,
And earnestly strive for the kingdom divine.
5 Come, heavenly DOVE,
Transform us in love,
And make us all meet for the manfions above.
