1 JEHOVAH speaks! let Isr'el hear;
Let all the Earth rejoice and fear,
While GOD's eternal Son proclaims
His Sov'reign Honours and his Names:
2 "I am the Last, and I the First,
"The SAVIOUR-GOD, and GOD the Just;
"There's none beside pretends to shew
"Such Justice and Salvation too.
[3 "Ye that in Shades of Darkness dwell,
"Just on the Verge of Death and Hell,
"Look up to me from distant Lands;
"Light, Life, and Heav'n are in my Hands.
4 "I by my holy Name have sworn,
"Nor shall the Word in vain return;
"To me shall all Things bend the Knee,
"And ev'ry Tongue shall swear to me.]
5 "In me alone shall Men confess
"Lies all their Strength and Righteousness;
"But such as dare dispise my Name,
"I'll clothe them with eternal Shame.
6 "In me the LORD, shall all the Seed
"Of Isr'el from their Sins be freed;
"And by their shining Graces prove
"Their Int'rest in my pard'ning Love."
