COME, Lord, and warm each languid heart,
Inspire each lifeless tongue ;
Their influence to our song.
The wings of Faith shall soar, And all the charms of Paradise
Our raptur'd thoughts explore. Pleasures, unfully'd flourish there,
Beyond the reach of time; Not blooming Eden (mild so fair,
In all her flowery prime. Sorrow, and pain, and every care,
And discord there shall cease ; And perfect joy, and love fincere,
Adorn the realms of peace. The foul from fin for ever free,
Shall mourn it's power no more ;
Redeeming love adore.
Th’exalted Saviour shines ;
On all the heavenly minds !
Join in immortal songs;
And endless honours to his name
Employ their tuneful tongues.
Our feeble notes inspire ;
We join th' angelic choir.

Exhaustless riches find; o n rohet Riches, above what earth can grant,
And lasting as the mind.
And yields a free repaft, ostegun a
T Invite the longing taste. 13 Here, the Redeemer's welcome voice,
Spreads heavenly peace around;
Attend the blissful found.
My ever dear delight;
And still increasing light.
Divine Instructor, gracious Lord,
Be thou for ever near;
And view my Saviour there.
