“Christ our passover is sacrificed for us.” 1 Cor. 5. 7
J. Bakewell 8.7.
Paschal Lamb, by God appointed,
Loads of sin on thee were laid;
By almighty love anointed,
Thou hast full atonement made.
All thy people are forgiven,
Through the virtue of thy blood;
Opened is the gate of heaven;
Peace is made ’twixt man and God.
Jesus, hail! enthroned in glory,
There for ever to abide!
All the heavenly hosts adore thee,
Seated at thy Father’s side.
For thy people thou art pleading;
There thou dost their place prepare;
Ever for them interceding,
Till in glory they appear.
Riches, honour, strength, and blessing,
Thou art worthy to receive;
Loudest praises, without ceasing,
Meet it is for saints to give.
All the bright angelic spirits
Bring their sweetest, noblest lays;
Help to sing the Saviour’s merits;
Help to chant the Saviour’s praise.
