Consent, The. In Imitation of the Virgin's Answer to the Angel

In imitation of the Virgin's Answer to the Angel.

[Luk. 1.38.]

Great GOD: Thy Chosen People shall
Each one to Thee be Called home:
And to a Choice of thee they All
On thy Heart-conq'ring Call shall come.

God, Father, Son , and Spirit , make
Tenders that overcome us quite:
I'll be your GOD; He sayes: I'll take
In you, as in dear Sons delight.

The Lord-Redeemer does propose
To Pay for us a wondrous Price ;
To guide our Wayes ; to quell our Foes ;
And Lodge us in Eternal Bliss .

Dissolv'd by such sweet Rayes of Grace,
Darted from Thee, most Gracious Lord;
Behold, Thy willing Servant Prayes,
Fulfil to me thy Glorious Word.

JESUS, Our Holy Surety did
Work out a Righteousness compleat;
Sinners, Tis yours , He sayes, to Plead ,
Righteous before Gods Judgment-seat.

Our Sin , of Enemies the worst,
This, God will Pardon and Subdue ;
Tis this, O God, for which I thirst!
Sins Death , Saints as their Life pursue.

When Tempted , our kind Friend on High,
Succours will send us down from thence;
To Him , we in Temptations fly;
And Favours Hee'l by them dispense.

Dissolv'd by such sweet Rayes of Grace,
Darted from Thee, most Gracious Lord;
Behold, Thy willing Servant Prayes,
Fulfill to me thy Glorious Word.

Our Spirits Born from Heav'n above,
God will for Heav'nly Flights prepare;
Then them to Paradise remove,
And Blessed Visions grant them there.

Our Cleansed Bodies from the Grave ,
He to our Spirits will restore;
In them we shall New Mansions have,
Bright, Strong; And, death shall be no more .

So, in the CITY of our God,
Him we shall Serve , and Love , and See:
O City of our Long Abode;
How Long , till we arrive to thee!

Dissolv'd by such Sweet Rayes of Grace,
Darted from Thee, most Gracious Lord;
Behold, Thy willing Servant Prayes,
Fulfill to me thy Glorious Word.
