74. Glory be to Jesus

1 Glory be to Jesus,
Who in bitter pains
Poured for me the life-blood
From His sacred veins!
Grace and life eternal
In that Blood I find,
Blest be His compassion,
Infinitely kind!

2 Blest through endless ages
Be the precious stream,
Which from endless torments
Does the world redeem!
Abel’s blood for vengeance
Pleaded to the skies;
But the Blood of Jesus
For our pardon cries.

3 Oft as earth exulting
Wafts its praise on high,
Angel-hosts, rejoicing,
Make their glad reply.
Lift ye then your voices;
Swell the mighty flood;
Louder still and louder,
Praise the precious Blood!
