1 Jesus Christ, the Lord's anointed,
Who his blood for sinner's spilt;
Is the stone by God appointed,
And the church is on him built:
He delivers
All who trust him, from their guilt.

2 Many eyes at once are fixed
On a person so divine;
Love with awful justice mixed,
In his great redemption shine:
Mighty Jesus!
Give me leave to call thee mine.

3 By the Father's eye approved,
Lo, a voice is heard from heaven,
"Sinners, this is my beloved,
For your ransom freely given:
All offences,
For his sake, shall be forgiven."

4 Angels with their eyes pursued him,
When he left his glorious throne;
With astonishment they viewed him,
Put the form of servant on:
Angels worshiped
Him who was on earth unknown.

5 Satan and his host amazed,
Saw this stone in Zion laid;
Jesus though to death abased,
Bruised the subtle serpent's head,
When to save us,
On the cross his blood he shed.

6 When a guilty sinner sees him,
While he looks his soul is healed;
Soon his sight from anguish frees him,
And imparts a pardon sealed:
May this Savior
Be to all our hearts revealed.

7 With desire and admiration,
All his blood bought flock behold
Him who wrought out their salvation,
And enclosed them in his fold:
Yet their warmest
Love and praises are too cold.

8 By the eye of carnal reason,
Many view him with disdain;
How will they abide the season
When he'll come with all his train?
To escape him
Then they'll wish, but wish in vain.

9 How their hearts will melt and tremble,
When they hear his awful voice!
But his saints he'll then assemble,
As his portion and his choice;
And receive them
To his everlasting joys.

The Christian's duty, exhibited in a series of hymns, 1791

Author: John Newton

Newton, John, who was born in London, July 24, 1725, and died there Dec. 21, 1807, occupied an unique position among the founders of the Evangelical School, due as much to the romance of his young life and the striking history of his conversion, as to his force of character. His mother, a pious Dissenter, stored his childish mind with Scripture, but died when he was seven years old. At the age of eleven, after two years' schooling, during which he learned the rudiments of Latin, he went to sea with his father. His life at sea teems with wonderful escapes, vivid dreams, and sailor recklessness. He grew into an abandoned and godless sailor. The religious fits of his boyhood changed into settled infidelity, through the study of Shaftesbury and… Go to person page >
