1 Holy Lamb, who thee receive,
Who in thee begin to live,
Day and Night they cry to thee,
As thou art, so let us be!
2 Jesus see my panting Breast:
See I pant in thee to rest!
Gladly would I now be clean:
Cleanse me now from ev'ry Sin.
3 Fix, Oh! fix my wav'ring Mind;
To thy Cross my Spirit bind;
Earthly Passions far remove:
Swallow up our Souls in Love.
4 Dust and Ashes though we be,
Full of Guilt and Misery,
Thine we are, thou Son of God:
Take the Purchase of thy Blood!
5 Who in Heart on thee believes,
He th' Atonement now receives:
He with Joy beholds thy Face,
Triumphs in thy pard'ning Grace.
6 See ye Sinners, see the Flame
Rising from the slaughter'd Lamb;
Marks the New, the living Way,
Leading to eternal Day!
7 Jesu, when this Light we see,
All our Soul's athirst for thee:
When thy quick'ning Pow'r we prove,
All our Heart dissoves in Love.
8 Boundless Wisdom, Pow'r divine,
Love unspeakable are thine!
Praise by all to thee be giv'n
Sons of Earth, and Hosts of Heav'n.
