Representative Text

1 The Saviour alone,
The Lord let us bless,
Who reigns on his Throne,
The Prince of our peace;
Who ever more saves us
By shedding his blood;
All hail, Holy Jesus,
Our Lord and our God!

2 We thankfully sing
Thy glory and praise,
Thou merciful spring
Of pity and grace:
Thy kindness for ever
No men will we tell,
And say, our dear Saviour
Redeems us from hell.

3 Preserve us in love,
While here we abide:
O never remove
Thy presence nor hide
Thy glorious salvation,
Till each of us see
With joy the bless'd vision,
Completed in thee.

John Cennick was born at Reading, Berkshire, in the year 1717. He became acquainted with Wesley and Whitefield, and preached in the Methodist connection. On the separation of Wesley and Whitefield he joined the latter. In 1745, he attached himself to the Moravians, and made a tour in Germany to fully acquaint himself with the Moravian doctrines. He afterwards ministered in Dublin, and in the north of Ireland. He died in London, in 1755, and was buried in the Moravian Cemetery, Chelsea. He was the author of many hymns, some of which are to be found in every collection. --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A. 1872.… Go to person page >
