VARIOUS CHARACTERS UNITED




What various lovely characters,
The condescending Saviour bears!
All human virtues, all divine,
In him unite, with splendour shine.


The corner stone on which we build,
The balm by which our souls are healed;
The morning star, whose cheering ray
Dispels the shades, and brings the day.


He is our rock, and our defence,
Nor earth nor hell can force us thence;
Our advocate before the throne,
Who with our prayers presents his own.


He is the burdened sinnerís rest,
Our prophet, and atoning priest;
To him as our exalted king,
We homage pay, our offerings bring.


He is our captain and our guide,
The friend, the husband of the bride;
The counsellor, the prince of peace,
The Lord our strength and righteousness.


The fountain whence our blessings flow,
A lamb, and yet a lion too;
A sun for light and guidance given,
The door which opens into heaven.


He is the shepherd of the sheep,
Who does his flock in safety keep;
The conqueror he, the judge of men,
The faithful witness, the Amen!
