Praise to the Redeemer

Full Text

1 To our Redeemer's glorious name
Awake the sacred song.
Oh, may His love, immortal flame,
Tune ev'ry heart and tongue!

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

3 He left His radiant throne on high,
Left realms of heav'nly bliss,
And came to earth to bleed and die--
Was ever love like this?

4 Dear Lord, while we adoring pay
Our humble thanks to Thee,
May every heart with rapture say,
"The Savior died for me!"

5 Oh, may the sweet, the blissful theme
Fill every heart and tongue
Till strangers love Thy charming name,
And join the sacred song!

Amen.
