THE BELIEVER'S BERTTER PORTION




Let earthly monarchs boast
The honours of a throne,
Tell of their wide extended coast,
And kingdoms call their own.


Should both the Indies pour
Their treasure at their feet,
I envy not their boundless store,
Their shining pomp and state.


Jesus far better things
Hath purchased with his blood;
‘Tis he who makes us priests and kings,
And brings us near to God.


Our pardon to procure,
He suffered in our stead;
To make eternal blessings sure,
His soul an offering made.


From his acutest pain,
Our greatest triumphs flow;
And soon shall we in glory reign,
Where joys immortal grow.
