1 My dear Master Jesus Christ,
For peace to thee I fly;
In the Saviour, I am blest
To all eternity:
Free from care, and sin, and strife,
I rest in my dear bridegroom's love!
Ever living in that Life,
Which Jesus lives above.

2 O! the heights of Jesus's grace,
Which I so richly view,
Saviour, in thy lov'd embrace
Are blessings ever new:
Blessings, constant as the day,
Flows from that wounded heart of thine;
All the force of words can't say
How glorious, how divine.

3 Lost in wonder, I alore
The mighty Prince of Life;
Him to praise for evermore,
Be now my only strife:
That God might not frown on me,
Nor doom my soul to banishment,
He upon the shameful tree
To suffer was content.

4 Patient he the cross endur'd
Did all the shame despise,
Well he knew and was assur'd,
This bloody sacrifice
Should his children all complete
In spotless truth and purity;
This the joy before him set
When he engag'd to die.

5 Here my sin and curse was drown'd,
Redemption here obtain'd;
Here the peace, once lost, and found,
And Life eternal gain'd:
Dead upon the cross, in him,
Atonement for my sin I see,
Weeping from each lifeless limb,
For enemies, for me.
