Hymn/Song Information

PRAISE TO THE REDEEMER




To our Redeemer's glorious name
Awake the sacred song!
O may his love, (immortal flame,)
Tune every heart and tongue.


His love, what mortal thought can reach?
What mortal tongue display?
Imagination's utmost stretch
In wonder dies away.


He left his radiant throne on high
Left the bright realms of bliss,
And came to earth to bleed and die!
Was ever love like this?


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


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


Dear Lord, while we, adoring, pay
Our humble thanks to thee,
May every heart with rapture say,
“The Saviour died for me!”


O may the sweet, the blissful theme,
Fill every heart and tongue;
Till strangers love thy charming name,
And join the sacred song.
