10.10.10.10. Dactylic


1
O WHAT a Saviour is Jesus the Lord!
Well may His Name by His saints be adored!
He has redeemed them from hell by His blood,
Saved them for ever, and brought them to God.
2
Now in the glory He waits to impart
Peace to the conscience, and joy to the heart;
Waits to be gracious, to pardon and heal
All who their sin and their wretchedness feel.
3
Thousands have fled to His spear-piercèd side;
Welcome they all have been, non are denied;
Weary and laden, they all have been blest;
Joyfully now in the Saviour they rest.

A. Midlane (1825-1909)
