Philip Doddridge (1702–1751)


Jesus, we own Thy sav­ing power,
And Thy vic­to­ri­ous hand;
Hell’s le­gions trem­ble at Thy feet,
And fly at Thy com­mand.

O’er souls, by pass­ion’s up­roar filled
With an­ar­chy un­known,
The nob­ler pow­ers, re­stored by Thee,
Ascend their peace­ful throne.

No more they rend their cloth­ing off,
No more their wounds re­peat;
But gentle and com­posed they wait
Attentive at Thy feet.

O’er thou­sands more, where Sa­tan rules,
May we such tri­umphs see;
And be their res­cued souls and ours
Devoted, Lord, to Thee.
