EXCELLENCY OF CHRIST




O could I speak the matchless worth,
O could I sound the glories forth
which in my Saviour shine!
Id sing His glorious righteousness,
and magnify the wondrous grace
|:which made salvation mine. :|

2. Id sing the precious blood He spilt,
My ransom from the dreadful guilt
of sin, and wrath divine;
Id sing His glorious righteousness,
in which all perfect, heavenly dress
|:my soul shall ever shine. :|


Id sing the characters He bears,
And all the forms of love He wears,
exalted on His throne;
In loftiest songs of sweetest praise,
I would to everlasting days
|:make all His glories known. :|


Soon, the delightful day will come
When my dear Lord will bring me home,
and I shall see His face;
Then with my Savior, Brother, Friend,
a blessed eternity Ill spend,
|:triumphant in His grace. :|


---Alternative verses---


Oh could I speak the matchless worth,
Oh could I sound the glories forth,
Which in my Saviour shine!
Id soar, and touch the heavenly strings
And vie with Gabriel while he sings
|:In notes almost divine.:|


Well, the delightful day will come,
When my dear Lord will take me home,
And I shall see His face.
Then with my Saviour, Brother, Friend,
A blest eternity Ill spend,
|:Triumphant in His grace.:|


Well, the delightful day will come,
When my dear Lord will bring me home,
And I shall see His face.
Then with my Saviour, Brother, Friend,
A blest eternity Ill spend,
|:Triumphant in His grace.:|
