1 Jesus, accept the praise
That to thy name belongs;
Master of all our praise,
Subject of all our songs:
Through thee we now together came,
And part exulting in thy name.

2 In flesh we part awhile,
But still in spirit join'd,
T'embrace the happy toil,
Thou hast to each assign'd:
And, while we do thy blessed will,
We bear our heav'n about us still.

3 O let us thus go on
In all thy pleasant ways,
And, arm'd with patience, run
With joy th' appointed race!
Keep us, and every seeking soul,
Till all attain the heav'nly goal.

4 There we shall meet again,
When all our toils are o'er,
And death, and grief, and pain,
And parting are no more.
We shall with all our brethren rise,
And grasp thee in the flaming skies.

5 O happy, happy day,
That calls thy exiles home!
The heav'ns shall pass away;
The earth receive its doom:
Earth we shall view and heav'n dstroy'd,
And shout above the fiery void!

6 Then let us wait the sound
That shall our souls release,
And labour to be found
Of him in spotless peace;
In perfect holiness renew'd,
Adorn'd with Christ, and meet for God!

In 1716 he went to Westminster School, being provided with a home and board by his elder brother Samuel, then usher at the school, until 1721, when he was elected King's Scholar, and as such received his board and education free.
