6.6.8.4.6.6.8.4.


1
THE Father sent the Son
A ruined world to save;
Man meted to the sinless One
The cross - the grave.
Blest Substitute from God,
Wraths's awful cup He drained;
Laid down His life, and e'en the tomb's
Reproach sustained.
2
Earth suddered as He dies,
God's well-belovèd Son;
The darkness sought His woes to hide;
His word is done.
He lives to die no more,
Joy dwells upon His brow;
His agonies untold are o'er,
He triumphs now!
3
The new and living way
Stands open now to heav'n;
Thence, where the blood is seen alway,
God's gift is giv'n.
The river of His grace,
Through righteousness supplied,
Is flowing o'er the barren place
Where Jesus died.
4
The Lord shall come again;
The Conqueror must reign.
No tongue but shall confess Him then,
The Lamb once slain.
Jesus is worthy now
All homage to receive;
Worthy that all to Him should bow,
The truth believe.

Miss H.K. Burlingham (1842-1901)
