Hymn/Song Information

THE EUNUCH




Behold, the Eunuch, when baptised,
Went on his way with joy;
And who can tell what rapturous thoughts
Did then his mind employ.


Is that most glorious Saviour mine,
Of whom I lately read?
Who bearing all my sins and griefs,
Was numbered with the dead?


Is he, who left the lonesome grace,
Who reigns above the sky,
My advocate before the throne,
My portion when I die?


Have I professed his holy name?
Do I his gospel bear,
To Ethiopia’s scorched hands,
And shall I spread it there?


Bless’d pool, in which I lately lay,
And left my fears behind;
What an unworthy worm am I,
And God profusely kind!


Bless’d emblem of that precious blood,
Which satisfied for sin;
And of that renovating grace,
Which makes the conscience clean.


All ye who now have been baptised,
This pattern keep in view;
The same your work, the same shall be
Your consolation too.
