Representative Text

1 To sing Immanuel's grace divine,
Ye saints employ your tuneful breath:
Delightful is the sacred theme,
Of Jesus' love more strong than death.

2 Lo! whilst we were his enemies,
Meet objects of almighty wrath;
He paid his life a sacrifice,
His love to shew more strong than death.

3 Sinners to save from endless woes,
The Father's frown he sunk beneath;
The law's dread penalty he bore,
Displaying love, more strong than death:

4 Ye saints unite with those above,
Ev'n in your last expiring breath:
Unite to sing the Saviour's love,
More strong, more powerfulthan death.
