Hymn 1:19. The song of Simeon; or, Death made desirable, Luke 2. 27 &c.

1 Lord at thy temple we appear,
As happy Simeon came,
And hope to meet our Saviour here;
O make our joys the same!

2 With what divine and vast delight
The good old man was fill'd,
When fondly in his wither'd arms
He clasp'd the holy child!

3 |Now I can leave this world,| he cry'd,
|Behold thy servant dies,
|I've seen thy great salvation, Lord,
|And close my peaceful eyes.

4 |This is the light prepar'd to shine
|Upon the Gentile lands,
|Thine Israel's glory, and their hope
|To break their slavish bands.|

5 [Jesus, the vision of thy face
Hath overpowering charms
Scarce shall I feel death's cold embrace
If Christ be in my arms.

6 Then while ye hear my heart-strings break,
How sweet my minutes roll!
A mortal paleness on my cheek,
And glory in my soul.]
