“Every battle … is with confused noise.” Isa. 9. 5

W. Gadsby         C.M.

1
Jesus our heavenly Warrior is,
He fights our battles well;
His wisdom, love, and power displays,
And conquers death and hell.

2
When this almighty Warrior stood
The church’s woes to bear,
Sin, Satan, and the curse of God,
In blazing wrath drew near.

3
He bore their every poisonous dart,
Nor from God’s vengeance fled;
Hell seized his agonisèd heart,
And, lo! he bowed his head.

4
He stained his garments in their blood,
And, O victorious King!
In triumph rose the conquering God,
Sweet victory to sing.

5
He satisfied the claims of law,
In that tremendous day;
Let saints from hence their comfort draw,
And sing their cares away.

6
O for a living faith to view
The victories of the Lamb;
And sweetly lean upon him too,
Nor fear to trust his name.
