Psalm 40:3 (the Wonders, Lord, Thy Love Has Wrought)

Psalm 40:3. 5-10. L. M.
Christ our sacrifice.


The wonders, Lord, thy love has wrought,
Exceed our praise, surmount our thought;
Should I attempt the long detail,
My speech would faint, my numbers fail.

No blood of beasts on altars spilt,
Can cleanse the souls of men from guilt,
But thou hast set before our eyes
An all-sufficient sacrifice.

Lo! thine eternal Son appears,
To thy designs he bows his ears,
Assumes a body, well prepar'd,
And well performs a work so hard.

"Behold, I come," (the Saviour cries,
With love and duty in his eyes)
"I come to bear the heavy load
"Of sins, and do thy will, my God.

"'Tis written in thy great decree,
"'Tis in thy book foretold of me,
"I must fulfil the Saviour's part,
"And, lo! thy law is in my heart!

"I'll magnify thy holy law,
"And rebels to obedience draw,
"'When on my cross I'm lifted high,
"Or to my crown above the sky.

"The Spirit shall descend, and show
"What thou hast done, and what I do;
"The wond'ring world shall learn thy grace,
"Thy wisdom and thy righteousness."

Psalm 41 (blest Is The Man Whose Bowels Move)
Psalm 41. 1 2 3Charity to the poor; or, Pity to the afflicted.Blest is the man whose bowels move,And melt with pity to the poor,Whose soul, by sympathising love,Feels what his fellow-saints endure.His heart contrives for their reliefMore good than his own hands can do;He, in the time of general grief,Shall find the Lord has bowels too.His soul shall live secure on earth,With secret blessings on his head,When drought, and pestilence, and dearthAround him multiply their dead.Or if he languish on his couch,God will pronounce his sins forgiv'n,Will save him with a healing touch,Or take his willing soul to heaven.(The end)Isaac
