Milgrove was Precentor of the Countess of Huntingdon's Chapel in Bath (see illustration). This setting comes from his second (of three) collections of "hymns as they are sung at the Right Honourable the Countess of Huntingdon's chappel in Bath". The general congregation (sometimes divided into men and women) should sing the Air, accompanying harmonies to be taken by the choir.
Lyrics: Christopher Batty

O Jesus, everlasting God,
Who once for sinners shed thy blood,
Upon Mount Calvary,
And finished there redemption's toil,
And made lost man thy happy spoil:
All glory be to Thee.

Fain would I think upon thy pain,
And find therein my life and gain,
And fix my heart and mind
Upon thy wounds, and dying love;
Nor from that point my heart remove,
But all my heaven there find.

Content and glad I'll ever be
To have salvation, Lord, from Thee,
Even as a sinner poor:
I nothing have, I nothing am;
My treasure's in the bleeding Lamb,
Both now and evermore.

The more, through grace, myself I know
The more content I am to bow,
And sink beneath thy cross;
And live by faith upon thy blood,
Waiting on Thee for every good,
And count my gain but loss.
