1
With wonder and with love,
We at thy courts appear;
Thy ways our hearts approve,
And thy great name revere;
We own the Lamb, our Leader wise,
Nor would we dare his ways despise.

2
[What Jesus does command,
His children should obey;
He’s King in Zion’s land,
And does his sceptre sway;
Let Zion, then, with one accord,
Obey the precepts of her Lord.]

3
Can anything be mean,
That’s worthy of our God?
The King himself was seen
In Jordan’s swelling flood;
And shall the subject scorn to tread
The path the King himself has made?

4
Come, fill our souls with love,
With faith, and peace, and joy,
Nor let the price of blood
Against her God reply;
Dear Father, draw, and we will run,
In sweet obedience to thy Son.
