1 Thou Lamb of God, thou Prince of Peace
For thee my thirsty Soul doth pine!
My longing Heart implores thy Grace
O make me in thy Likeness shine.

2 With fraudless, even, humble Mind
Thy Will in All Things may I see:
In Love be every Wish resign'd,
And hallow'd my whole Heart to thee:

3 When Pain o'er my weak Flesh prevails
With Lamb-like Patience arm my Brest;
When Grief my wounded Soul assails
In lowly Meekness may I rest.

4 Close by thy side still may I keep,
How e'er Life's various current flow;
With stedfast Eye mark every Step,
And follow thee where'er thou go.

5 Thou, Lord, the dreadful fight hast won
alone thou hast the Vinepress trod;
In me thy Strengthening Grace be shewn,
O may I conquer thro' thy Blood!

6 So when on Sion thou shalt stand,
And all Heaven's Host adore their King,
Shall I be found at thy Right-Hand,
And free from Pain thy Glories sing.

Richter, Christian Friedrich, son of Sigismund Richter, Rath and Chancellor to Count von Promnitz at Sorau, in Brandenburg, was born at Sorau, Oct. 5, 1676. At the University of Halle he was first a student of medicine and then of theology. In 1698, A. H. Francke appointed him Inspector of the Paedagogium, and then made him, in 1699, physician in general to all his Institutions. In company with his younger brother, Dr. Christian Sigismund Richter, he made many chemical experiments, for which he prepared himself by special prayer; and invented many compounds which came into extensive use under the name of the “Halle Medicines," the most famous being the Essentia dulcis, which was a preparation of gold.
