A SWEET SAVOUR




Praise to the Lord on high,
Who spreads his triumphs wide!
While Jesus' fragrant name
Is breath'd on every side:
Balmy and rich the odors rise,
And fill the earth, and reach the skies.


Ten thousand dying souls
Its influence feel—and live;
Sweeter than vital air
The incense they receive:
They breathe anew, and rise and sing
Jesus, the Lord, the conqu'ring King.


But sinners scorn the grace.
That brings salvation nigh:
They turn their face away.
And faint, and fall, and die.
So sad a doom, ye saints, deplore—
For Oh! they fall to rise no more.
