Hymn/Song Information

LOVE TO OUR ENEMIES




Aloud we sing the wond’rous grace,
Christ to his murd’rers bore;
Which made the tort’ring cross its throne.
And hung its trophies there.


“Father, forgive,” his mercy cry’d,
With his expiring breath;
And drew eternal blessings down
On those who wrought his death.


Jesus, this wond’rous love we sing,
And whilst we sing, admire;
Breathe on our souls, and kindle there
The same celestial fire.


Sway’d by thy dear example, we
For enemies will pray:
With love, their hatred and their curse;
With blessings we’ll repay.


Pity shall touch our hearts to see
A hungry starving foe:
The needful bread our hands out-stretch’d
Shall joyfully bestow.
