5. Now unto him, whose love was shown
To us, in dying strains;
Who, by his own most precious blood,
Hath washed away our stains;
6. And made us kings, and priests, to God,
His Father, we adore.
Be glory, and dominion, now.
And henceforth evermore.
John Barnard, born in Boston, Nov. 6, 1681; in 1752 made a version of psalms with the music; settled at Marblehead; introduced new music ther; died Jan 14, 1770, aged 89.
