NAAMAN WASHING IN JORDAN




How prone are we, like Syria’s chief
To slight those methods of relief,
Which sovereign power possess;
Wherein does Jordan’s stream excel,
May not our Pharpar do so well,
And God delight to bless?


But had his unbelief prevailed,
His leprosy had ne’er been healed,
Nor had he mercy found;
And thus what fruit can we expect,
If we the appointed means neglect,
Where grace and peace abound?


Sovereign of hearts, thy mind reveal,
Subvert our schemes, and bow our will
Submissively to thine;
Oh may we haste to keep thy laws,
Nor be ashamed to own thy cause,
So honoured and divine.


Strengthened by thine efficient grace,
May we fulfil all righteousness,
Thy holy name severe;
The bright example of the Lord,
Let us pursue with one accord,
And feel his presence here.


Beneath the stream he found a grave,
And rising from the yielding wave,
Confirmed to solemn rite;
Like him may we both sink and rise,
With him ascend above the skies,
And dwell with him in light.
