Would sound aloud thy saving love,.
And sing thy bleeding heart.

Who bought me with his blood,
And quenched his Father's flaming sword
In his own vital flood:

From Satan's heavy chains,
And sent the lion down to howl
Where hell and horror reigns.

All glory to the dying Lamb,
And never-ceasing praise,
While angels live to know his name,
Or saints to feel his grace.
