181. Plung'd in a gulf of dark despair

1.
Plunged in a gulf of dark despair,
We wretched sinners lay,
Without one cheering beam of hope,
Or spark of glimmering day.

2.
With pitying eyes the Prince of peace
Beheld our helpless grief:
He saw, and, O amazing love!
He ran to our relief.

3.
Down from the shining seats above
With joyful haste he sped fled,
Entered the grave in mortal flesh,
And dwelt among the dead.

4.
O for this love let rocks and hills
Their lasting silence break;
And all harmonious human tongues,
The Savior's praises speak!

5.
Angels, assist our mighty joys,
Strike all your harps of gold;
But when you raise your highest notes,
His love can ne'er be told.

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah.
