66 ( William Gadsby

Sweet Jesus! how great is Thy love;

Thy mercy and truth know no end;

And all that are born from above,

Shall find Thee a permanent Friend;

Dear Saviour, enlighten my eyes,

That I may the wonders behold

Contained in the law of the wise,

Too grand and too great to be told.

Oh, what a rich field of delight!

How sweet and how fragrant the smell!

Its beauties astonish me quite,

Nor am I yet able to tell

The half of the glory I see

In that divine treasure of grace;

Sweet wonders are shown unto me,

When I behold Jesus's face.

Dear Jesus! thy glories unfold,

Nor let me be wanting of sight;

O may I with pleasure behold

Thy statutes, and in them delight.

I want to know nothing beside:

Here's room for my soul to expand,

Nor can I be better employed

In Meshech's discouraging land.
