CHIEF AMONG TEN THOUSAND




In Jesus my exalted Lord,
Transcendent beauties meet;
Like polished gold, his sacred head,
Like burnished brass, his feet.


In him all excellence is found,
Both human and divine;
Through all his works, in all his words,
His matchless glories shine.


His name is music to my ear,
And transport to my heart;
My hopes revive when he is nigh,
And droop if he depart.


Let the rich miser prime his gold,
The monarch boast his crown;
‘Tis all I crave and all I ask,
To call the Lord my own.
