Cheer up, desponding soul

Cheer up, desponding soul,
thy longing pleased I see;
‘Tis part of that great whole,
wherewith I longed for thee:

Wherewith I longed for thee,
and left my Father's throne ;
from death to set thee free,
to claim thee for my own:

To claim thee for my own,
I suffered on the cross;
O were my love but known,
no soul could fear its loss:

No soul could fear its loss,
but filled with love divine,
would die on its own cross,
and rise for ever mine.

John Byrom (1691-1763)
