C. Wesley

SEE where our great High Priest

Before the Lord appears,

And on His loving breast

The tribe of Israel bears;

Never without His people seen,

The head of all believing men.


With Him, the Corner-stone,

The living stones conjoin;

Christ and His Church are one,

One body and one vine;

For us He uses all His powers,

And all He has, or is, is ours.


The path of Christ our Head

The members all pursue,

By His good Spirit led

To act and suffer too:

Like Him, the toil, the cross, sustain,

Till, glorious all, like Him we reign.
