Arlington. Christ a Merciful High-Priest. C. M.
1. With joy we meditate the grace
Of our High-priest above;
His heart is made of tenderness,
His bowels melt with love.
2. Touched with a sympathy within,
He knows our feeble frame;
He knows what sore temptations mean,
For he has felt the same.
3. He, in the days of feeble flesh,
Poured out his cries and tears,
And in his measure feels afresh
What every member bears.
4. Then let our humble faith address
His mercy and his power;
We shall obtain delivering grace
In each distressing hour.
