Representative Text

1 Ye who profess the Lord to love,
Let all your lives and actions prove,
With pure desires and ardent zeal,
Attach'd to Christ to do his will.

2 Walk ye in love as christians ought,
Remember ye are dearly bought,
And ransom'd with the greatest price,
When Jesus died our sacrifice.

3 A sacrifice of sweetest smell
As pleas'd the righteous father well,
When his dear precious blood was spilt,
It then atton'd for all our guilt.

4 Amazing love beyond degree!
No great love could ever be,
O christians take this love in view!
And learn what sovereign love can do.

5 This love renews the soul within,
And makes the mind avers'd to sin;
All works of darkness are denied
Reprov'd, condemn'd and mortified.
