1 Christ's Birth and Circumcision too,
His Fasting and Temptations shew,
His Agony and bloody Sweat,
His wounded Heart and Torments great,
His Blood, his Death, and all shall prove
The Fulness of the Godhead-Love.
2 'Tis he who groans and cries aloud,
And weeps, and sighs, and hangs in Blood;
'Tis as his Soul was put to Pain,
And as he was most sharply slain;
That he is worthy to unseal
The Book of God, and all reveal.
3 Under this Form, we hear him preach,
And, by his Wounds, his Brethren teach,
And God is Love to favour'd Man,
And was ere Worlds of Time began;
His Being, Name, and Nature, Love:
This calls us up to Worlds above.
4 Our Nature's Curse, our Sin and Pride,
Are now destroy'd, and all beside,
Which renders it unmeet for God;
The Lamb hath purg'd us by his Blood:
Our Happiness he always wills,
And in us all his Joy fulfils.
