1 Jesus, Redeemer of mankind,
Display thy saving power;
Thy mercy let these outcasts find,
And know their gracious hour.
2 Ah give them, Lord, a longer space,
Nor suddenly consume;
But let them take the proffer'd grace,
And flee the wrath to come.
3 O would'st thou cast a pitying look
(All Goodness as thou art)
Like that which faithless Peter's broke,
Or my obdurate heart.
4 Who thee beneath their feet have trod,
And crucified afresh,
Touch with thine all-victorious blood,
And turn the stone to flesh.
5 Open their eyes, and ears, to see
Thy cross, to hear thy cries:
Sinner, thy saviour weeps for thee,
For thee he weeps, and dies.
6 All the day long he meekly stands
His rebels to receive,
And shews his wounds, and spreads his hands,
And bids you turn and live.
7 Turn, and your sins of deepest dye
He will with blood efface?
Even now he waits the blood t' apply,
Be sav'd, be sav'd by grace.
8 Be sav'd from hell, from sin and fear:
He speaks you now forgiven,
Walk before God, be perfect here,
And then come up to heaven.

Jesu, Redeemer of mankind. C. Wesley. [Lent Holiness desired.] Appeared in Hymns and Sacred Poems, 1742, p. 246, in 14 stanzas of 4 lines, and based upon Titus ii. 14, "He gave Himself for us that He might redeem us from all iniquity" (Poetical Works, 1868-72, vol. ii. p. 303). Six stanzas, beginning with stanza ix., were given in the Wesleyan Hymn Book, 1780, No. 394, as "What is our calling's glorious hope." This text has been repeated in several collections.
