1
We adore the Lord the Lamb,
And rejoice in his dear name;
He has shed his precious blood,
To redeem our souls to God.

2
Once we lay immersed in sin;
Every part and power unclean;
Enemies to all that’s good,
We despised the Saviour’s blood.

3
But the Lord, by grace divine,
Brought us to abhor the crime;
And, to make his wonders known,
Gave us faith in Christ, his Son.

4
Thus redeemed and saved by blood,
We esteem the ways of God,
And would gladly him obey,
In his own appointed way.

5
’Tis from love to Christ, our Head,
We his footsteps wish to tread;
And when we his unction feel,
We with pleasure do his will.
