Representative Text

1 Jesus Christ, God’s holy Lamb,
We will laud thy lovely name;
We were saved by God’s decree,
And our debt was paid by thee.

Take this tribute of the poor;
Less we can’t, we can’t give more.

3 Souls redeemed, your voices raise,
Sing your dear Redeemer’s praise;
Worthy thou of love and laud,
King of saints, incarnate God.

4 Righteous are thy ways, and true;
Endless honours are thy due;
Grace and glory in thee shine;
Matchless mercy, love divine.

5 We for whom thou once wast slain,
We thy ransomed sinner-train,
In this one request agree,
“Make us more resemble thee.”
