Hymn/Song Information

Tis we O Lord who Thou hast known




‘Tis we, O Lord,
whom Thou hast shown
The deadly bitterness of sin;
We, who forgiving love have known,
May fitly bring thank-offerings in.


Thy presence called
for Israel’s praise,
Encompassed by their mortal foes;
And when in death they met their gaze,
What songs of glorious triumph rose.


And we have known
redemption, Lord,
From bondage worse
than theirs by far;
Sin held us by a stronger cord,
Yet by Thy mercy free we are.


O blessèd Lord!
Thy groans and tears,
Thy death the power
of darkness broke;
Bursting the chains we wore for years
It freed us from the iron yoke.


Divine Deliverer! Thou alone
Thy people from
the deep couldst bring;
The glorious triumph all Thine own;
Thy Name, Thy might,
Thy grace, we sing.
