1 Paschal Lamb, by God appointed,
All our sins on thee were laid:
By almighty love anointed,
Thou hast full atonement made.
2 Adam's sons are now forgiven,
Through the virtue of thy blood!
Open'd is the gate of heaven--
Peace is made 'twixt man and God.
3 Jesus, hail, entthron'd in glory,
There for ever to abide;
All the heavenly hosts adore thee,
Seated at thy Father's side.
4 There for sinners thou art pleading--
There thou dost our place prepare;
Ever for us interceding,
Till in glory we appear.
5 Glory, honour, pow'r, and blessing,
Thou art worthy to receive;
Loudest praises, without ceasing,
Meet it is for us to give.
6 When we join th' angelic spirits,
In their sweetest, noblest lays,
We will sing our Saviour's merits--
Gladly chant Immanuel's praise.
