In agonizing pains expir'd ; Who dy'd for rebels-yes, 'tis he! How bright how lovely! how admir'd! 4. Jesus, who dy'd that we might live, Dy'd in the wretched traitor's place; O what returns can mortals give, For such immeasurable grace!
5. Were universal nature ours,
And art with all her boasted store; Nature and art with all their powers,
Would still confess the off'rer poor ! 6. Yet tho' for bounty, so divine,
We ne'er can equal honours raise, Jesus, may all our hear be thine, And all our tongues proclaim thy praise.
