Representative Text

Here, behold the seat of mercy:
Here, from doubt and fear release:
Here a Refuge for the guilty:
Here are joy and health and peace:
Here a Covert near the Godhead,
Where the vile may make their nest;
Justice smiling fond approval,
Honoured Law declares them blest.

Favorite Welsh Hymns, 1854
