Hail, thou once-despisèd Jesus

Hail, thou agonizing Saviour, Bearer of our sin and shame; By thy merit we find favour; Life is given through thy name. 2 Paschal Lamb, by God appointed, All our sins were on thee laid; By Almighty love anointed, Thou hast full atonement made. All thy people are forgiven Through the virtue of thy blood; Open'd is the gate of heaven, Peace is made 'twixt man and God. 3 Jesus, hail! enthroned in glory, There for ever to abide, All the heavenly hosts adore thee, Seated at thy Father's side; There for sinners thou art pleading; There thou dost our place prepare; Ever for us interceding, Till in glory we appear. 4 Worship, honour, power, and blessing Thou art worthy to receive; Loudest praises, without ceasing, Meet it is for us to give! Help, ye bright angelic spirits, Bring your sweetest, noblest lays; Help to sing our Saviour's merits, Help to chant Emmanuel's praise. Topics: The Christian Year Palm Sunday and Passion Week
