CXCVI. All in All

1 Cone, tho' we can truly sing,
In our flesh dwells no good thing;
Yet on him who gives us all,
We're embolden'd still to call.

2 Blind, and foolish once were we,
Christ our wisdom now we see;
In this wisdom we confide,
By this we are justifi'd;

3 Once in breaking God's command,
Doom'd to death beneath his hand;
Now we're call'd to own, and bless,
Jesus Christ our righteousness.

4 Without purity of heart
Truth divine will say depart,
But this holiness we find,
In the Saviour of mankind.

5 Many, mighty are our foes!
Human these, angelic those,
Where for refuge shall we flee?
Christ our great redemption see!

6 Seraphs, flames of sacred fire,
View this myst'ry with desire;
Hark! the bright enraptur'd throng
Catch, and raise the grateful song.

7 O ye thrones of heav'nly light,
Since you're sav'd from endless night,
And since we are rais'd to you,
Let us still the song pursue.
