Ye Who Profess To Love The Lord
Ye who profess the Lord to love,
Let all your lives and actions prove,
With pure desires and ardent zeal,
Attach’d to Christ to do his will.
Walk ye in love as christians ought,
Remember ye are dearly bought,
And ransom’d with the greatest price,
When Jesus died our sacrifice.
A sacrifice of sweetest smell
As pleas’d the righteous father well,
When his dear precious blood was spilt,
It then atton’d for all our guilt.
Amazing love beyond degree!
No great love could ever be,
O christians take this love in view!
And learn what sovereign love can do.
This love renews the soul within,
And makes the mind avers’d to sin;
All works of darkness are denied
Reprov’d, condemn’d and mortified.
