Allen and Batty, A Collection of Hymns for Those That Seek, London, England, 1757

1. Savior, I do feel thy merit,
Sprinkled with redeeming blood;
And my weary troubled spirit
Now finds rest in thee, my God :
I am safe, and I am happy,
While in thy dear arms I lie,
Sin and Satan cannot hurt me,
When the Savior is so nigh.

2. Now I'll sing of Jesus' merit,
Tell the world of his dear name;
That if any want his Spirit,
He is still the very same:
He that asketh, soon receiveth,
He that seeks is sure to find;
Come, for whosoever believeth,
He will never cast behind.

3. Now our advocate is pleading
With his Father, and our God;
Now for us he's interceding,
As the purchase of his blood :
Now methinks I hear him, praying,
Father, save them, I have died;
And the Father answers, saying,
They are freely justified.

 

Joshua Smith, Divine Hymns, New York, 1800

1. Savior, I do feel thy merit,
Sprinkled with redeeming blood,
And my weary troubled spirit,
'Now finds rest with thee, my God.
l am safe, and I am happy,
While in thy dear arms I lie:
Sin nor Satan cannot hurt me,
Willie my Savior is so nigh.

2 Glory, glory, glory, glory,
Glory be to God on high,
Glory, glory, glory, glory,
Sing his praises through the sky:
Glory, glory, glory, glory,
Glory to the Father give,
Glory, glory, glory, glory,
Sing his praises all that live!

3. Now I'll sing my Savior's merit,
Tell the world of his dear name.
That if any want his Spirit,
He is still the very same.
He that asketh soon receiveth,
He that seeks is sure to find :
Whosoever on him believeth.
He will never cast behind.

4. Now our advocate is pleading,
With his Father and our God:
And for us is interceding,
As the purchase of his blood.
Now methinks I hear him praying,
"Father! Save them I have died;"
And the Father answers, saying,
"They are freely justified."

5. Soon we hope to sing more sweetly,
At the marriage of the Lamb,
When the bride is dressed completely,
Fit to celebrate the same;
All our shouts shall then be ringing,
Round the throne of God most high,
And In sweet melodious singing,
Loud shall echo through the sky.

6. Glory, honor and thanksgiving,
Be unto the Lord our King;
O! let every creature living,
The Redeemer's praises sing.
Allelujah! Allelujah!
Now the Lord Jehovah reigns;
Allelujah! Allelujah!
Sing his praise in highest strains.

 

Ingalls, Christian Harmony, Exeter, New Hampshire, 1805

1. Savior, I do feel thy merit,
Sprinkled with redeeming blood,
And my weary troubled spirit
Now finds rest with thee, my God.
I am safe, and I am happy,
While in thy dear arms I lie;
Sin nor Satan cannot hurt me,
While my Savior is so nigh.

2. Glory, glory, glory, glory,
Glory be to God on high,
Glory, glory, glory, glory,
Sing his praises through the sky;
Glory, glory, glory, glory,
Glory to the Father give,
Glory, glory, glory, glory,
Sing his praises all that live .

3. Now I’ll sing my Savior’s merit,
Tell the world of his dear name,
That if any wants his Spirit,
He is still the very same;
He that asketh, soon receiveth.
He that seeks is sure to find,
Whosoever on him believeth,
He will never cast behind.

4. Glory, glory, glory, glory,
Glorious Christ of heavenly birth,
Glory, glory, glory, glory,
Sing his praises thro’ the earth;
Glory, glory, glory, glory,
Glory to the Spirit be,
Glory, glory, glory, glory.
To the sacred One in Three.

5. Now our Advocate is pleading
With his Father, and our God;
And for us is interceding,
As the purchase of his blood;
Now methinks I hear him praying.
Father! save them, I have died,
And the Father answers, saying,
They are freely justified.

6. Worthy, worthy, worthy, worthy,
Worthy is the Lamb of God,
Worthy, worthy, worthy, worthy,
Who loved and washed us in his blood.
Holy, holy, holy, holy.
Holy is the Lord of hosts,
Holy, holy, holy, holy,
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

7. Soon we hope to sing most sweetly,
At the marriage of the Lamb,
When his bride is dressed completely,
Fit to celebrate the same:
O what shouts shall then be ringing
Round the throne of God most high,
And what sweet, melodious singing
Then shall echo through the sky.

8. Glory, honor and thanksgiving,
Be unto the Lord our King;
O let every creature living
The Redeemer’s praises sing;
Hallelujah! hallelujah!
Now the Lord Jehovah reigns;
Hallelujah! hallelujah!
Sing his praise in highest strains.

9. Blessed, blessed, blessed, blessed,
Blessed be the God of heaven,
Blessed, blessed, blessed, blessed,
Who has all our sins forgiven :
Praised, praised, praised, praised,
Praised be his holy name,
Praised, praised, praised, praised,
Now and ever more. Amen.
