CHRIST A PROPHET PRIEST AND KING




Jesus, how precious is thy name!
The great Jehovah’s Darling, thou!
O let me catch th' immortal flame,
With which angelic bosoms glow!

Thee above all this heart would love,
And imitate the blest above!



My prophet thou, my heavenly guide,
Thy sweet instructions I will hear;
The words that from thy lips proceed,
O how divinely sweet they are!

Thee above all this heart would love,
And imitate the blest above!



My great High-Priest, whose precious blood
Did once atone upon the cross;
Who now dost intercede with God,
And plead the friendless sinner's cause.

Thee above all this heart would love,
And imitate the blest above!



My King supreme, to thee I bow,
A willing subject at thy feet:
All other lords I disavow,
And to thy government submit.

Thee above all this heart would love,
And imitate the blest above!



Transcendent Prince ! for ever dear,
Dearer than thousand worlds to me,
Shall bold, presumptuous rivals dare
Pretend to share my love with thee?

Thee above all this heart would love,
And imitate the blest above!
