From the German.

1 THOU Lamb of GOD, Thou Prince of Peace,
2 For Thee my thirsty Soul doth pine!
3 My longing Soul implores Thy Grace,
4 O make in me thy Likeness shine.
5 With fraudless, even, humble Mind,
6 Thy Will in all Things may I see:
7 In Love be ev'ry Wish resign'd,
8 And hallow'd my whole Heart to Thee.
9 When Pain o'er my weak Flesh prevails,
10 With Lamb-like Patience arm my Breast;
11 When Grief my wounded Soul assails,
12 In lowly Meekness may I rest.
[Page 146]
13 Close by Thy Side still may I keep,
14 Howe'er Life's various Current flow;
15 With stedfast Eye mark ev'ry Step,
16 And follow Thee where'er Thou go.
17 Thou, LORD, the dreadful Fight hast won;
18 Alone Thou hast the Wine-press trod:
19 In me Thy strength'ning Grace be shown,
20 O may I conquer through Thy Blood!
21 So when on Sion Thou shalt stand,
22 And all Heav'n's Host adore their King,
23 Shall I be found at Thy Right Hand,
24 And free from Pain Thy Glories sing.
