EUNUCH BAPTISED




The holy Eunuch, when baptised,
Went on his way with joy;
And who can tell what rapt'rous thoughts
Did then his mind employ?


“Is that most glorious Saviour mine
Of whom I lately read?
Who, bearing all my sins and griefs,
Was numbered with the dead?”


“Is he, who, bursting from the grave,
Now reigns above the sky,
My advocate before the throne—
My portion when I die?”


“Have I professed his holy name?
Do I his gospel bear
To Ethiopia's scorched lands?
And shall I spread it there?”


“I'll tell them of that precious blood
Which cancels ev'ry sin,
And of that renovating grace,
Which makes the conscience clean.”


This pattern, Lord, with sacred joy,
Help us to keep in view;
The same our work to spread thy fame,
And ours the pleasure too.
