AND did the Holy and the Just,

The Sovereign of the skies,

Stoop down to wretchedness and dust,

That guilty man might rise?


Yes, the Redeemer left His throne,

His radiant throne on high—

Surprising mercy! Love unknown!

To suffer, bleed and die.


To dwell with misery here below,

The Saviour left the skies,

And sunk to wretchedness and woe,

That worthless man might rise.


He took the dying traitor’s place,

And suffered in his stead;

For sinful man—oh wondrous grace!

For sinful man He bled.


O Lord, what heavenly wonders dwell

In Thine atoning blood!

By this are sinners saved from hell,

And rebels brought to God.
