Another simple and earnest hymn of his is the following:
Come, brethren, unite
In holy delight,
To praise our Belovèd--redemption's great Light:
How sweet is the care
His love to declare--
That He should our chastisement faithfully bear.
Great God upon high,
The Lord from the sky,
He came as a Lamb without blemish, to die!
While under the sun,
Our duty is one--
To publish the merits and gifts of the Son.
A poor man He came,
Enduring our shame,
To be our Redeemer--our Brother by name:
Declare His renown,
The rights of His crown--
His life for the sheep hath the Shepherd laid down!
His blood hath made peace,
And brought us release;
And now the old bondage for ever must cease:
Who trust in His might
He leads into light;
Nor can any enemy break on His right.
