Victim divine Thy grace we claim While




Victim Divine,
Thy grace we claim,
While thus Thy precious
death we show:
Once offered up a spotless Lamb,
In Thy great temple here below,
Thou didst for all mankind atone,
And standest now
before the throne.


Thou standest in the holy place,
As now for guilty sinners slain;
The blood of sprinkling
speaks, and prays,
All prevalent for helpless man;
Thy blood is still our ransom found,
And speaks salvation all around.


The smoke of Thy
atonement here
Darkened the sun,
and rent the veil,
Made the new way
to Heaven appear,
And showed the great Invisible;
Well pleased in Thee,
our God looked down,
And calls His rebels to a crown.


He still respects Thy sacrifice;
Its savor sweet doth always please:
The offering smokes
through earth and skies,
Diffusing life, and joy, and peace;
To these, Thy lower courts,
it comes,
And fills them with
divine perfumes.


We need not now
go up to Heaven,
To bring the long
sought Savior down;
Thou art to all already given,
Thou dost een now
Thy banquet crown:
To every faithful soul appear,
And show Thy real presence here!


---Alternative verses---


God still respects Thy sacrifice;
Its savour sweet doth always please:
The offering smokes
through earth and skies,
Diffusing life, and joy, and peace;
To these, Thy lower courts,
it comes,
And fills them with
divine perfumes.
