Representative Text

I
We worship, Lord, before Thee now,
For great, and good, and pure art Thou.

II

Here, in our flesh, with us to dwell,
To bear the Cross, that we might be
From Satan’s servitude set free.

III
Wherefore we cry aloud and praise,
With thankful voice, Thy name always;
For, O! our Saviour, Thou didst bring
The joy that makes our souls to sing.
