And did the Holy and the Just The Sovereign of




And did the Holy and the Just,
The Sovereign of the skies,
Stoop down to man's estate and dust
That guilty worms might rise?


Yes, the Redeemer left the throne,
The radiant throne on high—
Surprising mercy, love unknown—
To suffer, bleed, and die.


To dwell with misery here below,
The Saviour left the skies,
And sunk to wretchedness and woe,
That worthless man might rise.


He took the guilty culprit's place
And suffered in his stead;
For man—oh, miracle of grace—
For man the Saviour bled.


Blest Lord, what heavenly wonders dwell
In Thine atoning blood!
By this are sinners saved from hell,
And rebels brought to God.


Jesus, my soul adoring bends
To love so full, so free;
Thy word declares that love extends
In saving power to me.


What glad returns can I impart,
For favour so divine?
Oh, take me, all, and fill my heart,
And make me wholly Thine.

That guilty man might rise!


Yes, the Redeemer left his throne,
The radiant throne on high—
Surprising mercy, love unknown!—
To suffer, bleed, and die.


He took the dying rebel's place,
And suffered in our stead;
For sinful man—oh, wondrous grace—
For sinful man he bled!


He took the dying traitor's place.
And suffered in his stead;
For sinful man—O wondrous grace!—
For sinful man he bled!


He took the dying traitor's place.
And suffered in his stead;
For man—O, miracle of grace!—
For man the Saviour bled!


O Lord! what heavenly wonders dwell
In thy most precious blood?
By this are sinners saved from hell,
And rebels brought to God.


O Lord, what heavenly wonders dwell
In Thine atoning blood!
By this are sinners saved from hell,
And rebels brought to God.


Dear Lord, what heavenly wonders dwell
In Thine atoning blood!
By this are sinners saved from hell,
And rebels brought to God.
