‘Tis mystery all! The Immortal dies!
Who can explore His strange Design?
In vain the first-born Seraph tries
To sounds the Depths of Love divine.
‘Tis mercy all! Let earth adore;
Let Angel Minds enquire no more.
Long my imprisoned Spirit lay,
Fast bound in Sin and Nature’s Night
Thine Eye diffused a quickening Ray;
I woke; the Dungeon flamed with Light.
My chains fell off, my Heart was free,
I rose, went forth, and followed Thee.
…helped get me through the last few days.
(capitalisations are part of the original hymn I think)
