1 Salvation! what a glorious plan;
How suited to our needs!
The grace that raises fallen man,
Our highest praise exceeds.

2 'Twas wisdom formed the vast design,
To ransom us when lost;
And love's unfathomable mine

3 Strict justice, with approving look,
The holy covenant sealed;
And truth and power undertook
The whole should be fulfilled.

4 Truth, wisdom, justice, power and love,
In all their glory shone;
When Jesus left the courts above,
And died to save his own.

5 Truth, wisdom, justice, power and love,
Are equally displayed;
Now Jesus reigns enthroned above
Our advocate and head.

6 Now sin appears deserving death,
Most hateful and abhorred;
And yet the sinner lives by faith,
And dares approach the Lord.
