Representative Text

1 Lord let thy servant now depart
Into thy promis'd rest;
Since my expecting eyes have been
With thy salvation bless'd;

2 Which till this time thy favour'd saints
And prophets only knew,
Long since prepar'd, but now set forth
in all the peoples view.

3 A light, to shew the heathen world
The way to saving grace,
Also the light and glory both
Of Isr'el's chosen race.

4 To Father, Son and Holy Ghost,
The God, whom we adore,
Be glory, as it was,is now,
And shall be ever more.
