“The firstlings of His flock” -
In choiceness God introduced
In His word, the sheep.

He brings soon to our view
The ram’s vigour,
Entrapping it to His will.

He shows us His yearling
Whose blood is cover
And whose flesh sustains.

And if our weakness
Attains to a sucking lamb only
He accepts it as a whole burnt-offering.
