Hymn 66
1. To him that loved the sons of men,
And washed us in his blood,
To royal honors raised our heads,
And made us priests to God.

2. To him let ev'ry tongue be praise,
And ev'ry heart be love!
All grateful honors paid on earth,
And nobler songs above!

3. Behold on flying clouds he comes!
His saints shall bless the day;
While they that pierced him sadly mourn;
In anguish and dismay.

4. Thou art the First, and thou the Last;
Time centres all in thee:
Th' Almighty Lord, who wast, and art,
And ever more shall be.
