When in the slipp’ry paths of youth, With heedless steps I ran, Thine arm, unseen, convey’d me safe, And led me up to man. 3. When worn with sickness, oft hast thou With health renew’d my face; And when in sin and sorrow sunk, Reviv’d my soul with grace. Ten thousand thousand precious gifts My daily thanks employ; Nor is the least a cheerful heart, That tastes those gifts with joy. 4. Through ev’ry period of my life, Thy goodness I’ll pursue; And after death, in distant worlds, The glorious theme renew.

4. Say, radiant seraphs, thron’d in light, Did love e’er tow’r so high a flight? Or glory sink so low? This wonder angels scarce declare; Angels the rapture scarce can hear, Or equal praise bestow. 3. Though now an infant bath’d in tears, He call’d to form the rolling spheres; And seraphs own’d his nod! Helpless he calls, but men delay: Ungrateful sinners disobey The first bom son of God! 5. Redemption! ‘tis a boundless theme; Thou boundless mind, our hearts inflame, With ardor from above: Words are but faint, let joy express, Vain is mere joy, let actions bless, This prodigy of love.

Yet, if our father’s faithful hand Conduct us through this gloomy land, Our souls with pleasure shall obey, And follow where he leads the way. 3. ) No more the well-known features trace, No more renew the fond embrace. 5.
