Hymn/Song Information

Thou the Christ forever one Maryís Child




Thou, the Christ forever one,
Maryís Child and Israelís God,
Danielís Prince and Davidís Son,
Jacobís Star and Jesseís Rod,
Thou of Whom of the prophets spake,
Thou in Whom their words came true,
Hear the pleading prayer we make,
Hear the Gentile for the Jew!


Knowing what the Spirit saith,
Sure of Thee, our Christ divine,
Lo, we stand, by right of faith,
Heirs of Abrahamís chartered line;
Can we then his sons forget,
Branches severed from their tree,
Exiles from their homes, and yet
Kinsmen, Lord, in flesh to Thee?


Though the Blood betrayed and spilt,
On the race entailed a doom,
Let its virtue cleanse the guilt,
Melt the hardness, chase the gloom;
Lift the veil from off their heart,
Make them Israelites indeed,
Meet once more for lot and part
With Thy householdís genuine seed.


Thou that didst Thy dews outpour,
Crowning alien grafts with fruit,
Soon the native growths restore,
Making glad the parent root:
Ah! but let not pride ensnare
Souls that need to mourn their sin;
Still the boughs adopted spare,
And the outcastsógraft them in!


Speed the day of union sweet
When with us in faith allied,
Israelís heart shall turn to greet
Thee, Whom Israel crucified;
Thee, in all Thy truth and grace,
Owned at last as Salemís King,
While her children find their place,
Gathered safe beneath Thy wing.
