CHRIST, like an uncorrupted seed,

Abides and reigns within;

Immortal principles forbid,

The Sons of God to sin.

Not by the terrors of a slave,

Do they perform his will;

But with the noblest powers they have,

His sweet commands fulfil.

They find access at every hour,

To God within the veil;

Hence they derive a quickening power,

And joys that never fail.
