Representative Text

1 Let us our hearts and voices raise,
To sound the mighty Saviour's praise,
And sing he di'd, and lives again
For us, the fallen sons of men.

2 He bare our curse, our debt he paid,
When all our woes on him were laid;
Our midnight darkness chas'd away,
And rais'd us to eternal day.

3 'Tis finish'd, saith the dying God,
For man, cry all his wounds and blood:
Salvation finish'd was for us,
In Jesus, bleeding on the cross.

4 He, fainting, felt death's rude divorce,
To put his testament in force;
Wherein to man he did bequeath
The labours of his life and death.

5 Quickly he breaks death's feeble chain,
And to his throne ascends again;
There sits adorn'd with wounds and blood,
And calls the wand'rers home to God.

6 Let all the sons of Zion sing
Unwearied praise to Christ their King,
He is our Saviour, God, and we
Will sound his name eternally.
