399: OF Jesus the Saviour we singby Samuel Medley (1738-1799)
1 OF Jesus the Saviour we sing,
His person, His name, and His love;
To Him the glad tribute we bring,
For oh, how His goodness we prove.
2 Oh, sing of His beauty divine,
For none upon earth is so fair;
His glories the heavens outshine,
No angel with Him can compare.
3 His brightness eclipses the sun
And all the vast orbs of the sky;
By dying His conquests He won,
And passed to the glory on high.
4 Oh, sing of His wonderful name
With ecstasy, rapture, and joy;
For aye let His heavenly fame
Our loudest hosannas employ.
