I.LIV. Jesus, we bless thy Father's Name

1 Jesus, we bless thy Father's Name:
Thy God and ours are both the same,
What heav'nly Blessings, from his Throne,
Flow down to Sinners through his Son!

2 Christ be my first Elect, he said,
Then chose our Souls in Christ our Head,
Before he gave the Mountains Birth,
Or laid Foundations for the Earth.

3 Thus did eternal Love begin
To raise us up from Death and Sin;
Our Characters were then decreed,
Blameless in love, a holy Seed.

4 Predestinated to be Sons,
Born by Degrees, but chose at once;
A new regenerated Race,
To praise the Glory of his Grace.

5 With Christ our Lord we share our Part
In the Affections of his Heart;
Nor shall our Souls be thence remov'd,
'Till he forgets his first belov'd.
