GLORIES OF THE SAVIOUR




Jesus, how lovely is his face!
Innumerable sweets are there;
Not one of all the human race
Is half so good or half so fair.


There heaven and earth their charms unite,
In full perfection there they shine;
Nor sun nor stars appear so bright,
Nor spread a lustre so divine.


Compassion sits upon his brow,
There terror mixed with love appears;
His lips with balmy spices flow,
His words are music to our ears.


These are thy glories, mighty Lord,
This the dear form thy saints adore;
‘Tis this will endless joys afford,
When earthly scenes delight no more.
