1. Come, thou-universal
Abraham's long-expected Seed;
Perfect peace and joy unceasing
Thro' the ransom'd nations spread:
Devilish pride, and brutal passion,
Far from every heart remove;
Bless us with thy full salvation,
Bless us with thy heavenly love.
2 Happy is the man forgiven,
This let every sinner feel;
Taste in Thee, his present heaven ;
Pant for greater blessings still;
O that all anew created,
Might thine Image here retrieve;
Then to paradise-translated,
In thy glorious presence live !
