A follower of the Lamb ?
Or blush to speak his pame?
2 Must I be carried to the skies
On flowery beds of ease,
And sailed through bloody seas?
3 Are there no foes for me to face?
Must I not stem the flood ?
To help me on to God?
4 Sure I must fight, if I would reign !
Increase my courage, Lord !
Supported by thy word.
5 Thy saints in all this glorious war,
Shall conquer, though they die;
And seize it with their eye,
6 When that illustrious day shall rise,
And all thy armies shine,
The glory shall be thine.
N evil long I took delight,
Unawed by shame or fear;
And stopp'd my wild career. 2 I saw one hanging on a tree,
In agonies and blood;
As near his cross I stood.
Can I forget that look;
Though not a word he spoke. 4 My conscience felt and owned the guilt,
And plunged me in despair;
And help'd to nail him there.
"I freely all forgive;
I die, that thou may'st live."
6 Thus while his death my sin displays
In all its blackest hue,
It seals a pardon too.
