CCXXIV. Lamb slain before the Foundation of the World

1 How shall our feeble lips proclaim
The honours of the Saviour's name?
Or how the gratitude declare,
Our hearts inflam'd to Jesus bear?

2 To manifest his wond'rous love,
Behold he leaves the worlds above;
From climes of bliss beyond the sky,
Swift he descends, to bleed and die.

3 Lo, he again from death revives,
Jesus the great Redeemer lives;
High, seated on his Father's throne,
He sheds his choicest blessings down.
