I.XLIII. What Beauties divine

1 What Beauties divine,
In Jesus do shine!
And yet all I see, I, with Boldness, call mine.

2 With him crucify'd,
When Jesus he dy'd,
My Nature was purg'd, and to God purify'd.

3 To me it is plain
When Jesus was slain,
Eternal Redemption he then did obtain.

4 From Bondage and Chains,
From Sin and Hell-pains,
Redemption of all in one Man he obtains.

5 Baptiz'd into him,
Who did me redeem,
His Person and Glories are my constant Theme.

6 For all of the Lamb
I rightfully claim,
To rest in his Fulness of Stature I aim.

7 The Father makes known
What he hath bestown
On Christ, and instructs me to call it my own.
