Almighty Father! in thy gracious office-work in covenant mercies,
give me to hear thy sweet proclamation of thy servant whom thou hast chosen,
and in whom, as the Church’s lead and Surety,
thou art well pleased, and hast delighted.

Oh! for the teachings of God the Holy Ghost,
to know Jehovah’s chosen and Jehovah’s beloved,
as my beloved, a meek Savior, a tender hearted Savior,
a well qualified and powerful Savior;
who though so gentle as not to break the bruised reed,
nor quench the smoking flax,
yet so mighty as to send forth judgment unto victory,
and in whose name the Gentiles shall trust.

And no less Almighty Spirit, do thou so teach, and guide me into all truth,
that out of the good treasure by regeneration,
and the daily renewings of thy grace which thou hast put into my heart,
I may bring forth good things,
while the generation of vipers,
by their evil things,
manifest the seed from whence they spring, yea!

Lord give me to see and know, by heartfelt experience, from thy sovereign work there wrought,
that I am of the mystical relationship of Christ, and among the number whom Jesus will own as his brother, and sister, and mother.
