Hymn/Song Information

Adam our father and our head Transgress




Adam, our father and our head,
Transgressed, and Justice doomed us dead.
The fiery law speaks all despair,
There's no reprieve nor pardon there.


Call a bright council in the skies,
Seraphs, the mighty and the wise,
Speak: are you strong to bear the load,
The weighty vengeance of a God?


Justice was pleased to bruise the God,
And pay its wrongs with heav'nly blood:
What unknown racks and pangs he bore!
Then rose; the law could ask no more.


In vain we ask; for all around
Stand silent through the heav'nly ground;
There's not a glorious mind above
Has half the strength or half the love.


But Oh! Unmeasurable[unutterable] grace!
The Son of God takes up our place;
Down to our world the Savior flies,
And for his unborn children dies.


Amazing work! Look down ye skies,
Wonder and gaze with all your eyes!
Ye saints below and saints above,
All bow to his mysterious love.


Lo! they adore th' incarnate Son,
And sing the glories he hath won;
Sing how he broke our iron chains,
How deep he suiik, how high he reigns!


Triumph and reign, victorious Lord,
By all the flaming hosts adored;
And say, dear Couqueror, say how long
Ere we shall rise to join their song.


Send down a chariot from above,
With fiery wheels, and paved with love
Raise us beyond th' ethereal blue,
To sing and love as angels do.
