The Wonders of Redemption. Phil. 2. 8; Heb. 10. 10

A. Steele                                              C.M.

1
And did the Holy and the Just,
The Sovereign of the skies,
Stoop down to wretchedness and dust,
That guilty worms might rise?

2
Yes, the Redeemer left his throne,
His radiant throne on high,
(Surprising mercy! love unknown!)
To suffer, bleed, and die!

3
He took the dying traitor’s place,
And suffered in his stead;
For man (O miracle of grace!)
For man the Saviour bled.

4
Dear Lord, what heavenly wonders dwell
In thy atoning blood!
By this are sinners snatched from hell,
And rebels brought to God.

5
What glad return can I impart
For favours so divine?
O take my all, this worthless heart,
And make it wholly thine.
