HYMN XXXVIII.

Plenteous Redemption.


David has said and sung it sweet,
That God with mercy is replete;
And thus I'll say, and thus I'll sing,
In rapture unto Christ my King.

5 King of my heart and my desires,
Which all my gratitude inspires,
Bids me be great and glorious still,
And so I must, and so I will.


1771
