With joy we meditate the grace Of our High Priest




With joy we meditate the grace
Of our High Priest above;
His heart is made of tenderness,
And ever yearns with love.


Touched with a sympathy within,
He knows our feeble frame;
He knows what sore temptations mean,
For He has felt the same.


But spotless, innocent, and pure,
The great Redeemer stood,
While Satan’s fiery darts He bore,
And did resist to blood.


He in the days of feeble flesh
Poured out His cries and tears,
And in His measure feels afresh
What every member bears.


He’ll never quench the smoking flax,
But raise it to a flame;
The bruisèd reed He never breaks,
Nor scorns the meanest name.


Then let our humble faith address
His mercy and His power;
We shall obtain delivering grace
In the distressing hour.


---Alternative verses---


With joy we meditate the grace
Of our High Priest above;
His heart is made of tenderness,
His bowels melt with love.


With joy we meditate the grace
Of our High Priest above;
His heart o’erflows with tenderness,
His very name is Love.


With joy we meditate the grace
Of God's High Priest above;
His heart is filled with tenderness,
His very name is Love.


With joy we meditate the grace
Of our High Priest above;
His heart is made of tenderness,
It melts with pitying love.


Touched with a sympathy within,
He knows our feeble frame;
He knows what sore temptations are,
For He endured the same.


But spotless, innocent, and pure,
Our great Redeemer stood,
No stain of sin did e’er defile
The holy Lamb of God.


He, when He sojourned here below,
Poured forth His cries and tears,
And though exalted, feels afresh
What every member bears.


He, in the days of sorrowing flesh,
Poured out His cries and tears,
And, though ascended, feels afresh
What every member bears.


He in the days of feeble flesh
Poured out His cries and tears,
And still, in glory, feels afresh
What every member bears.


Then boldly let our faith address
His mercy and His power;
We shall obtain delivering grace
In the distressing hour.


Then boldly let our faith address
The throne of grace and power:
We shall obtain delivering grace
In every needed hour.
