His Person

L.M.

1
What wonders in the Saviour meet,
His head, His hands, His side, His feet,
Present to the astonished view
Eternal glories ever new.

2
Poor and despised, yet rich and loved;
Humbled to death, His throne unmoved;
A servant, and a sovereign Lord;
Reviled and murdered, yet adored.

3
Pardon and life are His to give,
He died that all His church might live;
Became accursed, yet deigns to bless;
He is the Lord their Righteousness.

4
He had not where to lay His head,
Although the worlds were by Him made;
He hungered, yet He thousands fed;
Sinless, and yet for sin He bled.

5
The Father’s co-eternal Son,
The Friend of sinners (though undone);
The Portion all believers crave,
He’s Man to suffer, God to save.
