SWEET GRATITUDE




Awake, sweet gratitude, and sing
Th' ascended Saviour's love;
Tell how he lives to carry on
His people's cause above.


With cries and tears he offered up
His humble suit below;
But with authority he asks,
Enthroned in glory now.


For all that come to God by him,
Salvation he demands;
Points to their names upon his breast,
And spreads his wounded hands.


His sweet atoning sacrifice,
Gives sanction to his claim;
“Father, I will that all my saints
Be with me where 1 am.”


“By their salvation, recompense
The sorrows I endured;
Just to the merits of thy Son,
And faithful to thy word.”


Founded on right, his prayer avails;
The Father never can
From his anointed turn away,
Nor hear him ask in vain.


Eternal life, at his request,
To ev'ry saint is given;
Safety on earth, and, after death,
The plenitude of heaven.


Lord, I believe thou didst go up
To plead my cause with God;
And now thou in thy kingdom art,
Remember me for good!


Let the pure incense of thy prayer
In my behalf ascend;
And as its virtue, so my praise,
Shall never, never end.
