What condescending grace and love

Representative Text

1 What condescending grace and love
Did Christ for us display,
Who left the glorious worlds above,
To dwell in mortal clay!

2 He not th'angelic form assum'd,
Nor the celestial frame:
Tho' angels nobler natures boast,
And boast a nobler name.

3 Behold of Abrah'm's faithful seed
The great Redeemer born;
See him, in mortal flesh appear,
Our nature to adorn!

4 It well the Saviour's love became,
A human form to wear,
That he might thus our guilt atone,
And our transgressions bear.

5 Jesus our merciful high priest,
Inflam'd with love divine,
Redeem'd his people with his blood,
And did his life resign.

6 The pains, the agonies, he bore,
To our transgressions due;—
His arm in the distressing hour
His satins shall succour too.

7 Then to the throne of sov'reign grace,
Let us with joy draw near,
That we may gain a rich supply,
For all we want is there.
