Hymn/Song Information

O blessed day when first was poured




O blessed day when first was poured
The blood of our redeeming Lord!
O blessed day when Christ began
His saving work for sinful man!


While from His mother's bosom fed,
His precious blood He wills to shed;
A foretaste of His death He feels,
An earnest of His love reveals.


Scarce come to earth, His Father's will
With prompt obedience to fulfil,
A victim even now He lies
Before the day of sacrifice.


In love our guilt He undertakes;
Sinless, for sin atonement makes.
The great Lawgiver for our aid
Obedient to the Law is made.


The wound He through the Law endures
Our freedom from that Law secures
Henceforth a holier law prevails,
That law of love, which never fails.


Lord, circumcise our hearts, we pray,
And take what is not Thine away.
Write Thine own name upon our hearts,
Thy Law within our inward parts.


O Lord, the Virgin-born, to Thee
Eternal praise and glory be,
Whom with the Father we adore
And Holy Ghost forevermore.

O blessed day when first was poured
The blood of our redeeming Lord!
O blessed day when first began
His sufferings borne for sinful man!


Scarce enteríd on this life of woe.
His infant blood begins to flow;
A foretaste of His death He feels,
An earnest of His love reveals.


From heavín descending to fulfil
The bidding of His Fatherís Will.
A victim even now He lies
Before the day of sacrifice.


For love of us His woes begin;
The Sinless suffers for our sin;
The Lawís great Maker for our aid
Obedient to the Law is made.
