LOVE AND POWER OF CHRIST




The whole creation was undone,
The world in ruins lay,
When God sent forth his only Son,
To suffer and obey.


Jesus, with pity moved, forsakes
The glories of his throne,
Redeems the souls he loved, and makes
His Father’s counsels known.


The death he died, but quickly rose
Majestic from the grave;
And now he triumphs o’er his foes,
With sovereign power to save.


Freely he gives his promised grace,
To make our nature clean;
And clothes us with his righteousness,
‘Till not a spot is seen.


His mighty arm shall be our trust,
His hand our wants supply;
He’ll animate our sleeping dust,
And raise it up on high.


Thy praises, oh Immanuel,
Our lips shall spread abroad;
And in harmonious accents tell
The wonders of our God.
