GENTILES PRAYING FOR THE JEWS




Father of faithful Abraham, hear
Our earnest suit for Abraham's seed!
Justly they claim the softest prayer
From us, adopted in their stead,
Who mercy through their fall obtain,
And Christ by their rejection gain.


Outcast from thee, and scatter'd wide,
Thro' ev'ry nation under heaven:
Blaspheming him they crucify'd,
Unsav'd, unpity'd unforgiv'n:
Branded like Cain, they bear the lead,
Abhorr'd of men, and curs'd of God.


But hast thou finally forsook,
For ever cast thy own away?
Wilt thou not bid the outcasts look
On him they pierced, and weep, and pray?
Yes, gracious Lord, thy word is passed;
All Israel shall be saved at last.


Come then, thou great Deliverer, come!
The veil from Jacob's heart remove;
Receive thy ancient people home!
That, quickened by thy dying love,
The world may their reception find
Life from the dead for all mankind.
