Of Him, who did salvation bring

I could for ever think and sing;

Arise, ye needy, he'll relieve;

Arise, ye guilty, he'll forgive.

Ask but his grace, and lo, 't is give!

Ask, and he turns your hell to heaven:

Though sin and sorrow, wound my soul

Jesus, thy balm will make it whole.

To shame our sins, he blush'd in blood,

He closed his eyes to show us God;

Let all the world fall down and know

That none but God such love can show.

'T is thee I love, for thee alone

I shed my tears, and make my moan!

Where'er I am, where'er I move,

I meet the object of my love.

Insatiate to this spring I fly;

I drink, and yet am ever dry;

Ah! who against thy charms is proof?

Ah! who that loves, can love enough?
