1 Thus saith the Mercy of the Lord,
I'll be a God to thee;
I'll bless thy num'rous Race, and they
Shall be a Seed for me.
2 Abr'am believ'd the promis'd Grace,
And gave his Sons to God;
But Water seals the Blessing now,
That once was seal'd with Blood.
3 Thus Lydia sanctify'd her House,
When she receiv'd the Word;
Thus the believing Goaler gave
His Household to the Lord.
4 Thus later Saints, eternal King,
Thine ancient Truth embrace;
To thee their Infant Offspring bring,
And humbly claim the Grace.
