Charm'd with the honor to obey
Their great eternal king.

3 For us mean, wretched, sinful men,
Thou laid'st that glory by;
First in our mortal flesh to serve,
Then in that flesh to die.

4 Bought with thy service and thy blood,
We doubly, Lord, are thine;
To thee our lives we would devote,
To thee our death resign.
