1 Prepare a thankful song,
To the Redeemer's name!
Let his high praise employ each tongue
And every heart enflame!
2 He laid his glory by,
And bitter pains endured:
That sinners of the blackest dye
From wrath might be secured.
3 Stretched on the cross he died,
Our debt of sin to pay,
The blood and water from his side
Wash guilt and filth away.
4 Pleading for us he stands
Before the father's throne;
And answers all the Law's demands,
With what himself hath done.
5 The Holy Ghost he sends,
Our stubborn souls to move;
To make his enemies his friends,
And conquer them by love.
6 Assured that Christ our King,
Will put our foes to flight;
We, on the filed of battle sing,
And triumph, while we fight.
