3 In Spirit, now bold,
I plainly behold,
I am of this Body, O Wonder untold!

4 I now am at Peace;
I live in the Grace,
That keeps the Bride ever in th' Husband's Embrace.

5 My Praise shall abound
With heavenly sound,
A Church now perfected in Love I have found!

6 My Jesus reveals,
By op'ning the Seals
To me, what from Thousands he ever conceals.
