Touch'd with a feeling sympathy,
The Fountain of eternal Love

open now, poor Soul, for thee.

SAVIOUR, we want to know thy Blood,

We want to know our Father, God;
We want to see thy glorious Face,
Thro' his eternal, sov'reign Grace.
Our Strength and Virtue we have lost,
And Sin is all that we can boast;
If thou should'st leave us thus, we Die
And Perifh to Eternity.

'Tis Life Eternal thee to know,
'Tis from thee all our Blessings flow :
'Tis by the Virtue of thy Blood,
That we are reconcil'd to God.

'Tis by thy Blood we must o'ercome,
'Tis by thy Blood we are brought Home:
Sinners, 'tis Life to know this Blood,
'Tis this that seals your Pardon good.
O let us now be wash'd therein,
And let our Souls be freed from Sin :
Shew us, that tho' we are undone,
That thou, the Victory hast Won.


Then will we join to praise thy Name,
And fpread abroad thy glorious Fame,
Hosanna, to our Covenant God,
Behold the Merits of his Blood.

OST Souls to recover,

And form them afresh,
Our wonderful Saviour,
Partook of our Flesh;
From Sin to release us,
That Yoke so long worn,
The Holy Child Jesus,
Of Mary was born.
Ye vileft of Creatures,
Backsliders so base,
Bold Rebels and Traitors,
Abusers of Grace ;
Come cease your Backslidings,
And once more return,
Receive the glad Tidings,
A Saviour is born.
And ye that sincerely
Confide in the Lamb,
(He loves you most dearly)
Rejoice in his Name :
