Redemption by Christ. 1 DEAREST of all the names above,
My JESUS and my GOD,
The value of Thy blood!
2 'Tis by the merits of Thy death
Thy FATHER's love is seen ; 'Tis by Thy interceding breath
The Spirit dwells with men,
3 Till God in human flesh I see,
My thoughts no comfort find;
Are terrors to my mind.
4 But if IMMANUEL's face appear,
My hope, my joy begins ;
His blood removes my sins. 5 While some on their own works rely,
And some of wisdom boast, Thou great incarnate mystery, , In Thee is all my trust.
Redemption by Christ. 1 AND can it be that I should gain
An interest in the SAVIOUR's blood ? Died He for me, who caus'd His pain?
For me, who Him to death pursued ? Amazing love! how can it be
That Thou, my LORD, should'st die for me? 2 'Tis mystery all! Th’ Immortal dies !
- Who can explore His strange design? In vain the first-born seraph tries
To sound the depths of Love divine! 'Tis mercy all! let earth adore:
Let angel-minds inquire no more. 3 He left His FATHER's throne above,
(So free, so infinite His grace !) Emptied Himself of all but love,
And bled for Adam's helpless race: 'Tis mercy all, immense and free,
For, O my God, it found out me! 4 Long my imprison'd spirit lay
Fast bound in sin and nature's night; Thine eye diffus'd a quick’ning ray;
I woke; the dungeon flam'd with light! My chains fell off, my heart was free,
I rose, went forth, and follow'd Thee. 5 No condemnation now I dread,
JESUS, and all in Him, is mine! Alive in Him my living Head,
And cloth'd in righteousness divine, Bold I approach th' eternal throne, And claim the crown, thro' CHRIST, my own.
Shake off thy guilty fears;
In my behalf appears :
My name is written on His hands. 2 He ever lives above
For me to intercede;
His precious blood to plead:
And sprinkles now the throne of grace. 3 Five bleeding wounds He bears,
Receiv'd on Calvary;
They strongly speak for me:
His dear anointed One;
The presence of His SON:
And tells me I am born of God. 5 My God is reconcil'd;
His pardoning voice I hear:
I can no longer fear;
1 HARK! the voice of Love and Mercy
Sounds aloud from Calvary!
Shakes the earth, and veils the sky!
2 It is finish'd! O what pleasure
Do these charming words afford!
It is finish'd !
3 Finishd, all the types and shadows
Of the ceremonial law; -Finish'd all that God had promis'd; Death and hell no more shall awe.
It is finish'd ! Saints, from hence your comfort draw.
4 Tune your harps anew, ye seraphs;
Join to sing the pleasing theme:
i FATHER, how wide Thy glory shines!
How high Thy wonders rise!
By thousands through the skies.
Their motions speak Thy skill : And on the wings of every hour,
We read Thy patience still. .
3 But when we view Thy strange design
To save rebellious worms,
In their divinest forms;
de Here the whole Deity is known,
Nor dares a creature guess
The justice or the grace.
• Adorn the heavenly plains;
And try their choicest strains.
6 O may I bear some humble part
In that immortal song ;
And love command my tongue.
