Did'st thou O Saviour! condescend

Did'st thou O Saviour! condescend

Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Did'st thou O Saviour! condecend
To take a human birth?
Thou art our great and dearest friend
That ever was on earth.

2 To make attonements for our guilt,
As justice did demand;
When circumcis'd thy blood was spilt
And shed by human hand.

3 At the first shedding of thy blood
Salvation was began;
When thou, who art the Mighty God
Was't circumcis'd as man.

4 Sweet is the sound of thy bless'd name!
Where e'er it is applied:
Thou art thy-self become the same
What thy name signified.

5 Thy blood became the saving means
For all the human race:
To cleanse them from their countless sins,
And make them heirs of grace.

6 What great, what condecending love!
Did the dear Saviour show,
When he left all the heav'ns above
To save us here below.
