1 Nor Reason, nor Sense,
Knows how I commence
The Man that is perfect, and free from offence.
2 And yet what I say
Is Truth, and the Way
To Rest that is glorious, tho' Reason say nay.
3 In Jesus as clean
My Spirit's brought in,
Where I shall no more have a Conscience of Sin.
4 My Conscience is pure
In Jesus, and sure
Of answering in Peace towards God evermore.
5 This deep Holiness,
Which now I possess,
Is not by my cleansing the Filth of the Fles.
6 My Conscience it saith,
It is by the Faith
Of Christ's Resurrection, from Sin, Hell, and Death.
7 In Jesus complete,
My Brethren I'll greet;
All hail, happy People, our Honours are great!
