    A hymn written by Joseph Irons in Zion's Hymns. (in long meter)

    "Loving-kindness"

    1. Father, my soul delights to trace,
    In my Redeemer's glorious face,
    Thy loving-kindness, rich and free,
    From everlasting fix'd on me.

    2. This is the source of all my joy,
    Which hell and sin can ne'er destroy;
    In life, and death, my soul shall sing,
    The loving-kindness of my King.

    3. I'm number'd with the chosen race --
    I'm justified, and sav'd by grace --
    Yea, own'd by Christ, an heir of bliss --
    What wondrous loving-kindness this.

    4. 'Tis better, far, than life to me,
    It binds me to th' eternal Three;
    And when this mortal life is o'er,
    Thy loving-kindness I'll adore.

    5. Till then, my soul shall daily rest,
    Upon my dear Redeemer's breast,
    And view, in His atoning blood,
    The loving-kindness of my God.
