Representative Text

2 Blest Jesus, while thy grace I sing,
What grateful tgribute shall I bring,
That earth and heav'n and all may see
My love to him, who died for me?

3 That off'ring, Lord, thy word hath taught;
Nor be thy new command forgot,
That, if their Master's death can move,
Thy servants should each other love.

4 When on the cross I fix mine eye,
Let ev'ry savage passion die;
And may I ever ready be
To serve, forgive, and love like thee.
