Representative Text

1. God, the offended God most high,
Ambassadors to rebels sends;

To cast our arms, our sins, away,
And find forgiveness at His feet.

3. Our God in Christ! Thine embassy,

4. Poor debtors, by our Lord’s request
A full acquittance we receive!
And criminals, with pardon blessed,
We, at our Judge’s instance, live!
