1 Israel, in ancient days,
Not only had a view
Of Sinai in a blaze,
But learn'd the gospel too:
Thy types and figures were a glass,
In which they saw the Saviour's face.

2 The Paschal sacrifice,
And blood besprinkled door;
Seen with enlighten'd eyes,
And once apply'd with power,
Would teach the need of other blood,
To reconcile an angry God.

3 The Lamb, the dove set forth,
His perfect innocence,
Whose blood of matchless worth,
Should be the sou's defence,
For he who can for sin atone,
Must have no failings of his own.

4 The scape goat on his head,
The people's trespass bore,
And to the desert led,
Was to be seen no more:
In him our surety seem'd to say,
"Behold I bear your sins away."

5 Dipt in his fellows blood,
The living bird went free;
The type, well understood,
Express'd the sinner's plea;
Described the guilty soul enlarg'd,
And by the Saviour's death discharg'd.

6 Jesus I love to trace
Throughout the sacred page,
The footsteps of thy grace,
The same in every age:
O grant that I may faithful be,
To clearer light. vouchsaf'd to me.

The simple life of Cowper, marked chiefly by its innocent recreations and tender friendships, was in reality a tragedy. His mother, whom he commemorated in the exquisite "Lines on her picture," a vivid delineation of his childhood, written in his 60th year, died when he was six years old. At his first school he was profoundly wretched, but happier at Westminster; excelling at cricket and football, and numbering Warren Hastin… Go to person page >
