Hymn/Song Information

JESUS




Jesus! In thy transporting name,
What blissful glories rise!
Jesus!—the angels’ sweetest theme—
The wonder of the skies.


Well might the skies with wonder view
A love so strange as thine!
No thought of angels ever knew
Compassion so divine.


Jesus! and didst thou leave the sky
For miseries and woes?
And didst thou bleed, and groan and die,
For vile, rebellious foes?


Victorious love! can language tell
The wonders of thy power,
Which conquered all the force of hell,
In that tremendous hour?


What glad return can I impart
For favours so divine?
0 take my heart—this worthless heart,
And make it only thine.


Is there a heart that will not bend
To thy divine control?
Descend, O sovereign Love, descend,
And melt the stubborn soul!


Oh may our willing hearts confess
Thy sweet, thy gentle sway!
Glad captives of resistless grace,
Thy pleasing rule obey.


Come, dearest Lord, extend thy reign,
Till rebels rise no more;
Thy praise all nature then shall join,
And heaven and earth adore.


---Alternative verses---


Jesus! and didst thou leave the sky
To bear our sins and woes?
And didst thou bleed, and groan and die,
For vile, rebellious foes?
