Tune: Seaborn McDaniel Denson, 1908
Lyrics: Isaac Watts, 1719
Meter: Common Meter Double (8,6,8,6,8,6,8,6)
Behold the love, the generous love,
That holy David shows,
Behold His kind compassion move
For His afflicted foes.
When they are sick His soul complains,
And seems to feel the smart,
The spirit of the gospel reigns
And melts His pious heart.
