“Christ our passover is sacrificed for us.” 1 Cor. 5. 7

J. Bakewell               8.7.

    1
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.

2
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.

3
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.
