Its blooming head, and sovereign virtue bears :
There my Redeemer lives, &c.

4 No rising sunhistransientbeams displays.
No sickly moon emits her feeble rays ;
The Godhead there celestial glory sheds,
Th' exalted Lamb eternal radiance spreads :

There my Redeemer lives, &c.

6 One distant glimpse my eager passion fires I
Jesus, to thee my longing soul aspires !
When shall 1 at my heavenly home arrive —
When leave this earth, and v/hen begin to live ?

For there my Saviour is all bright and glorious.

O'er sin, and death, and hell, he reigns victorious.
