IMITATION OF CHRIST




Come, happy souls, adore the Lamb,
Who lov'd our race e'er time began,
Who veil'd his Godhead in our clay,
And in an humble manger lay.


To Jordan's stream the Spirit led,
To mark the path his saints should tread;
With joy they trace the sacred way,
To see the place where Jesus lay.


Baptiz'd by John in Jordan's wave,
The Saviour left his wat'ry grave;
Heav'n own'd the deed, approv'd the way,
And bless'd the place where Jesus lay.


Come, all who love his precious name;
Come tread his steps, and learn of him;
Happy beyond expression they
Who find the place where Jesus lay.
