Full Text

1 See, gracious Lord, with pitying eyes,
Beneath thy hand a sufferer lies,
Thy mercy, not thine anger proves;
And sick he is whom Jesus loves.

2 His to thine own afflictions join,
Accept, exalt, and count them thine;
Thy passion which remains fulfill,
And suffer in thy members still.

3 His sickness feel, endure his pain,
His burden bear, his cross sustain;
Grieve in his griefs, and sigh his sighs,
And breathe his wishes to the skies.

4 Enter his heart, possess him whole,
Inspire and actuate his soul;
Himself no longer let it be
That suffers, or that lives but thee.

5 Thyself through sufferings perfect made,
Conform him thus to thee his Head;
Refine, and raise his virtue higher,
When tried and purified by fire.

6 So when his eyes behold thee near,
And thou his hidden life appear;
Bright in thy likeness shall he shine,
And glorious all, and all divine.

The Christian's duty, exhibited in a series of hymns, 1791
