Representative Text

1 The Prince of Glory left his throne
And heav’n’s adoring throng,
To dwell on earth, despised, unknown,
Amid its sin and wrong.

Refrain:
O wondrous love! O grace divine,
This loving Saviour now is mine!

2 The Son of God, despising shame,
His glory laid aside,
And lived a life unknown to fame
Or worldly pomp and pride. [Refrain]

3 The Man Divine was pleased to die
The world from sin to save;
Upon the cross of Calvary
His life he freely gave. [Refrain]

4 The Mighty One the grave o’ercame
And lives and reigns on high;
Our gracious Lord—praise to his name!
We’ll greet him bye and bye. [Refrain]

Scott, Frederick George. (Montreal, Quebec, April 7, 1861--January 19, 1944, Quebec City). Anglican. Bishop's University (Lennoxville, Que.), B.A., 1881; M.A., 1884; D.C.I., 1901. Pastorates (all in Quebec) at Montreal, 1884-1886; Drummondville, 1887-1896; Quebec, 1896-1933. During his time as Canadian Army chaplain on the Western Front (1914-1919), he formed close ties with thousands of soldiers, whose subsequent dispersal all across Canada ensured a warm reception for his writings, and his message. He published ten volumes of verse, a novel, and The Great War as I Saw It, which was widely influential. --Hugh D. McKellar, DNAH Archives Go to person page >
