God Revealed in Christ.
Now to the Lord, a noble song!
Awake, my soul! awake, my tongue,
Hosanna to th' eternal name,
And all his boundless love proclaim.
2 See where it shines in Jesus' face, --
The brightest image of his grace!
God, in the person of his Son,
Has all his mightiest works outdone.
3 Grace! -- 'tis a sweet, a charming theme;
My thoughts rejoice at Jesus' name:
Ye angels! dwell upon the sound;
Ye heavens! reflect it to the ground.
4 Oh! may I live to reach the place,
Where he unveils his lovely face,
Where all his beauties you behold,
And sing his name to harps of gold.
Isaac Watts, 1707.
