1 The Saviour! O what endless charms
Dwell in the blissful sound!
Its influence every fear disarms,
And spreads sweet comfort round.

2 The mighty Former of the skies
Stooped to our vile abode,
While angels viewed with wondering eyes,
And hailed the incarnate God.

3 O the rich depths of love divine!
Of bliss, a boundless store!

I cannot wish for more.

4 On thee alone my hope relies,
Beneath thy cross I fall;
My Lord, my Life, my Sacrifice!
My Saviour, and my All!
