God's Anointed

How wondrous the glories that meet
In Jesus, and from His fate shine,
His love is eternal and sweet,
'Tis human, 'tis also divine.
His glory-not only God's Son—
In manhood He had His full part,—
And the union of both joined in one
Form the fountain of love in His heart.
The merits and worth of His blood
Have freed us from hell and from fear,
That we, as the blest sons of God,
May make His good pleasure our care.
O then may this union and love
Make us walk in the service of Heaven,
Mid obedience and suffering to prove
That we to the Lamb have been given.
