O blessed Lord what hast Thou done




O blessèd Lord,
what hast Thou done!
How vast a ransom paid!
Who could conceive God’s only Son
Upon the altar laid!


Thy Father, in His perfect love,
Did spare Thee from His side;
And Thou did stoop to bear above,
At such a cost Thy bride.


Lord, while our souls
in faith repose
Upon Thy precious blood,
Peace like an even river flows,
And mercy like a flood.


But boundless joy
shall fill our hearts
When gazing on Thy face,
We fully see what faith imparts,
And glory crowns Thy grace.


Unseen we love Thee,
dear Thy Name
But when our eyes behold,
With joyful wonder we’ll exclaim,
The half hath not been told!


For Thou exceedest all the fame
Our ears have ever heard:
Happy are they who know Thy Name,
And trust Thy faithful Word!

O blessèd Lord,
what hast Thou done!
How vast a ransom paid!
God’s only well-belovèd Son
Upon the altar laid!


O Blessed Lord,
what hast Thou done,
How vast a ransom given?
Thyself of God the eternal Son,
The Lord of earth and heaven.


Thy Father, in His willing love,
Could spare Thee from His side;
And Thou couldst stoop,
to bear above,
At such a cost Thy Bride.


Thy Father, in His gracious love,
Did spare Thee from His side:
And Thou didst stoop to bear above,
At such a cost, Thy bride.


While our full hearts in faith repose
Upon Thy precious blood,
Peace in a steady current flows,
Filled from Thy mercy’s flood.


What boundless joy
will fill our heart
Our every grief efface,
When we behold Thee as Thou art,
And all Thy love retrace.


For Thou exceedest all the fame
Our ears have ever heard;
How happy we who know Thy name,
And trust Thy faithful word!
