I.CXLIX. Join all the Names of Love and Pow'r

1 Join all the Names of Love and Pow'r,
That ever Men or Angels bore;
All are too mean to speak his Worth,
Or set Immanuel's Glory forth.

2 But O what condescending Ways
He takes to teach his heav'nly Grace!
My Eyes with Joy and Wonder see
What Forms of Love he bears for me.

[3 The Angel of the Cov'nant stands
With his Commission in His Hands,
Sent from his Father's milder Throne
To make the great Salvation known.]

[4 Great Prophet, let me bless thy Name,
By Thee the joyful Tidings came,
Of Wrath appeas'd, of Sins forgiv'n,
Of Hell subdu'd, and Peace with Heav'n.]

[5 My bright Example, and my Guide,
I would be walking near thy Side;
O let me never run astray,
Nor follow the forbidden Way!

6 I love my Shepherd, he shall keep
My wand'ring Soul amongst his Sheep;
He feeds his Flock, he calls their Names,
And in his Bosom bears the Lambs.]

[7 My Surety undertakes my Cause,
Answering his Father's broken Laws;
Behold my Soul at Freedom set,
My Surety paid the dreadful Debt.]

[8 Jesus, my great High-Priest has dy'd,
I seek no Sacrifice beside;
Thy Blood did once for all atone,
And now it pleads before the Throne.]

[9 My Advocate appears on high,
The Father lays his Thunder by;
Not all that Earth and Hell can say,
Shall turn my Father's Heart away.]

[10 My Lord, my Conqu'ror, and my King,
Thy Sceptte and thy Sword I sing;
Thine is the Vict'ry, and I sit
A joyful Subject at thy Feet.]

[11 Aspire, my Soul, to glorious Deeds,
The Captain of Salvation leads:
March on, nor fear to win the Day,
Though Death and Hell obstruct the Way.]

12 Should Death and Hell, and Powers unknown,
Put all their Forms of Mischief on,
I shall be safe; for Christ displays
Salvation in more sov'reign Ways.
