Christ the Chief.
To Christ, the Lord, let every tongue
Its noblest tribute bring:
When he's the subject of the song,
Who can refuse to sing ?
Survey the beauties of his face,
And on his glories dwell.;
Think of the wonders of his? grace,
And all his triumphs tell.
Majestic sweetness sits enthroned
Upon his awful brow ;
His head with radienfc glories crown'd,
Ilis lips with grace o'erflow.
-3STo mortal can with him compare
Among the sons of men :
Fairer he is than all the fair
That fill the heavenly train.
He saw me plung’d in deep distress,
He flew to my relief;
For me he bore the shameful cross,
And carried all my grief.
[llis hand a thousand blessings pours
Upon my guilty head ;
His presence gilds my darkest hours, v
And guards my sleeping bed,
To him I owe my life, and breath,
And all the joys I K ave.:
He makes, me triumpu v?er death,
A.nd saves me from the grave.]
To lieav’n, the place of his abode,
lie brings my weary feet;
Shows me the glories of my God,
And makes *my joys complete.
Since from his bounty I receive
Such proofs of love divine,
Had Ia thousand hearts to give,
Lord, they should all be thine !
