1 O Mighty God, thou virgin son!
Jesus, my Lord and King!
Thou art my Saviour, thou alone,
Who dost salvation bring:
2 Not any who on earth do dwell,
Not Kings of might and pow'r;
Nor Angels who do far excel,
Could save us ev'r more.
3 Such as the fallen Angels are,
Such was our wretched case,
Condemn'd to horror and dispair
And infinite disgrace.
4 The covenant that Adam broke,
Has caus'd our wretched state:
And thus we feel the heavy yoke
Of sin and all its weight.
5 But O, thy mercy and thy love!
And grace for us design'd:
Will ever more effectual prove,
To change the carnal mind.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #XX
