HYMN CLXV.

8.7.8.7.8.8.7

James Montgomery

Christ in various Characters.

Father! reveal Thy Son in me,

To my soul's eye, unclouded;

The fulness of the Deity,

In mortal semblance shrouded,

When, for a Name o'er every Name,

He bore the Cross, despised the shame,

And rose--the World's Redeemer.

168

Him then as mine may I confess,

With all my powers adore Him,

And, as the Lord my Righteousness,

Most humbly walk before Him,

Hail Him, mine Advocate, on high,

Extol His Priesthood, and rely

Upon His sole atonement.

All things for Him may I forsake;

In poverty and weakness,

His gentle burthen on me take,

And wear His yoke with meekness;

So shall I find in labour rest,

In suffering, peace,--of Christ possess'd

In me the hope of glory.
