Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 When God our Father's pleas'd
For to reveal his Son,
Immediately our Conscience eas'd
Becomes his peaceful Throne.

2 Consult we then no more
Our Senses, Flesh and Blood,
But in the day of heav'nly Pow'r
commence the sons of God.

3 Included all in One,
We now with Rapture tell,
We're in the Father's only son,
In whom he's pleased well:

4 This doth our God make known
To mortal Worms below:
All other Matters we disown,
This only will we know.

5 We leave this World behind,
With all its Faith and Forms,
And live in the eternal Mind,
Free from all Hell's Alarms.

6 What Sense suggests we leave,
With Reason's doubtful Plan,
And in the spirit's Power cleave
To Christ, the perfect Man.
