Representative Text

1 See Felix, cloth'd with pomp and power,
See his resplendent bride
Attend to hear a prisoner preach
The Savior crucify'd.

2 He well describes who Jesus was,
His glories and his love,
How he obey'd and bled belwo,
And reigns and pleads above.

3 Felix up starts and trembling cries,
"Go for this time away;
"I'll hear thee on these points again
"On some convenient day."

4 Attention to the words of life
Let Felix thus adjourn;
Lord, let us make these solemn truths,
Our first and last concenr.
