Representative Text

1 Oh, the sweet wonders of that cross

In sounds to mortal ears unknown;
With angels join to praise the Lamb,
And worship at His Father's throne.

3 O Lord, the Lord of lords, to Thee
Eternal praise and glory be;
Whom with the Father we adore,
And Holy Ghost for evermore.

Amen.
