Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

CCLXXIV. The Refelction of a baptized Believer-He went on his Way rejoicing

1 The holy Eunuch, when baptiz'd,
Went on his Way with Joy;
And who can tell what rapturous Thoughts,
Did then his Mind employ?

2 "Is that most glorious Saviour mine
"Of whom I lately read?
"Who bearing all my Sins and Griefs,
"Was number'd with the Dead?"

3 "Is he who bursting from the Grave;
"Now reigns above the Sky
"My Advocate before the Throne,
"My Portion when I die?

4 "Have I profess'd his holy Name?
"Do I his Gospel bear
"To Ethiopia's scorched Lands,
"And shall I spread it there?

5 "Bless'd Pool! in which I lately lay,
"And left my Fears behind;
"What an unworthy Wretch am I!
"And GOD profusely kind!

6 'Bless'd Emblen of that precious Blood
"Which satisfy'd for Sin;
"And of that renovating Grace,
"Which makes the Conscience clean."

7 This Pattern, LORD, with sacred joy
Help us to keep in View;
The same our Work, the same, O make
Our Consolation too.
