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.

John Wesley, the son of Samuel, and brother of Charles Wesley, was born at Epworth, June 17, 1703. He was educated at the Charterhouse, London, and at Christ Church, Oxford. He became a Fellow of Lincoln College, Oxford, and graduated M.A. in 1726. At Oxford, he was one of the small band consisting of George Whitefield, Hames Hervey, Charles Wesley, and a few others, who were even then known for their piety; they were deridingly called "Methodists." After his ordination he went, in 1735, on a mission to Georgia. The mission was not successful, and he returned to England in 1738. From that time, his life was one of great labour, preaching the Gospel, and publishing his commentaries and other theological works. He died in London, in 17… Go to person page >

Dober, Anna, née Schindler, was born April 9, 1713, at Kunewald, near Fulnek, Moravia. She went to Herrnhut in 1725, and in 1730 joined her friend and townswoman, Anna Nitschmann (q.v.), in forming the "Jungfrauenbund" (i.
