Infinite grace, and can it be

Infinite grace, and can it be

Representative Text

1 Infinite grace! and can it be
That heaven's Supreme should stoop so low!
To visit one so vile as I,
One who has been his bitt'rest foe!

2 Can holiness and wisdom join,
With truth, with justice, and with grace,
To make eternal blessings mine,
And sin, with all its guilt erase?

3 O love! beyond conception great,
That form'd the vast, stupendous plan!
Where all divine perfections meet
To reconcile rebellious man!

4 There wisdom shines in fullest blaze,
And justice all her rights maintains!
Astonish'd angels stoop to gaze,
While mercy o'er the guilty reigns.

5 Yes, mercy reigns, and justice too--
In Christ harmoniously they meet:
He paid to justice all her due,
And now he fills the mercy-seat.

6 Such are the wonders of our God,
And such th'amazing depths of grace,
To save from wrath's vindictive rod,
The sons of Adam's fallen race.

7 With grateful songs, then let our souls
Surround our gracious Father's throne;
And all between the distant poles
His truth and mercy ever own.
