O wondrous and mystery greatPublished in 3 hymnals
1 O Wondrous and myst'ry great,
On which all men should meditate:
Jesus, the blessed Lamb of God,
Came to redeem us with his blood.
2 The sons of men were doom'd to be
Condemn'd to all eternity.
Not men or angels could restore,
Or ransome man from Satan's pow'r.
3 Had all the hosts of heav'n conspir'd,
To do what justice had requir'd:
All their efforts would never do,
The race of Adam fell too low.
4 Yea, far beyond the reach of all
Did Adam with his children fall;
By none on earth or yet in heav'n
Could sure relief to them be giv'n.
5 None else but Christ, both God and man,
Could e'er complete that glorious plan;
It was himself alone could be,
The Ransom that could set them free.
6 Perfect obedience he did yield,
Till law and prophets were fulfill'd;
And all demands were satisfied,
When Christ the mighty Saviour died.
