THE GRACE OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST




We know the condescending grace
Of our Lord Jesus Christ:—we know
He came to seek and save our race
From sin, and death, and endless woe.


Rich ere the world began,—on earth
Impoverished to retrieve our loss,
And, from the manger at his birth,
Exalted only to the cross.


Yet in that humble crib was he
God in the flesh made manifest:
And, on that ignominious tree,
God over all, for ever blest.


Then at his manger let us meet,
In spirit our Immanuel own,
Or round the cross, beneath his feet,
Hail him as on the Father’s throne.


That throne and cross united here
Time not eternity can part,
As one henceforth the twain appear,
Seen only by the pure in heart:—


The pure in heart, for they alone
Can on the cross’s glory gaze,
Where the Lamb slain amidst the throne
Adoring saints and angels praise.
