íTis done! that new and heavenly birth,
Which re-creates the sons of earth,
Has cleansed from guilt of Adamís sin
A soul which Jesus died to win.
íTis done! the cross upon the brow
Is marked for weal or sorrow now,
To shine with heavenly luster bright,
Or burn in everlasting night.
O ye who came that babe to lay
Within a Saviorís arms today,
Watch well and guard with careful eye
The heir of immortality.
Teach him to know a Fatherís love,
And seek for happiness above,
To Christ his heart and treasures give
And in the Spirit ever live.
That so before the judgment seat
In joy and triumph ye may meet;
The battle fought, the struggle oíer,
The kingdom yours forevermore.
Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow,
Praise Him, all creatures here below,
Praise Him above, angelic host,
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
