4 Waft, waft, ye winds, his story,
And you, ye waters roll,
Till, like a sea of glory,
It spreads from pole to pole
Till o’er our ransom’d nature,
The Lamb for sinners slain,
Redeemer, King, Creator,
In bliss returns to reign.
 
Hymn 75 • O Jesus! the giver
HYMN 75. P. M.
 
1 O Jesus! the giver
Of all we enjoy,
Our lives to thy honor
We wish to employ;
With praises unceasing
We’ll sing of thy name,
Thy goodness increasing,
Thy love we’ll proclaim.
 
2 With joy we remember
The dawn of that day,
When, cold as December,
In darkness we lay;
The sweet invitation
We heard with surprise,
And witness’d salvation
To flow from the skies.
