6.6.6.6.8.8.


1
ON earth the song begins,
In heav'n more sweet and loud:
To Him who cleansed our sins
By His atoning blood,
To Him, we sing in joyful strain,
Be honour, power and praise, Amen.
2
Alone He bore the cross,
Alone its grief sustained;
His was the shame and loss,
And He the vict'ry gained;
The mighty work was all His own,
Though we shall share His glorious throne.

J. Swain (1761-1796)
