6 “Yet hope within us lingers,
“As if the Spirit spoke:—
‘He’ll come for your redemption,
‘And break your Gentile yoke:
 
7 ‘And all your captive brothers,
‘From every clime shall come,
‘And quit their savage customs,
‘To live with God at home.
 
8 “Then joy will fill our bosoms,
“And blessings crown our days,
“To live in pure religion,
“And sing our maker’s praise.”
 
Hymn 64 • And did my Savior die
HYMN 64. P. M.
 
1 And did my Savior die,
And shed his blood for me?
O! what’s the reason why,
Ungrateful I should be?
 
2 Why should I fear to speak,
And own my Savior’s name,
Or bow before his feet,
Or sing aloud his fame?
 
3 O, may I courage have,
From time to time to tell, [p. 84]
