6.6.8.6.6.8.


1
GOD, from His throne on high,
Gave His own Son to die,
His only Son, in wondrous grace,
That sinners blest might be;
From Satan's power set free;
And dwell in love before His face.
2
From heav'n the Saviour came,
Jesus, His precious name,
The mighty One, of all things Lord;
Lost, sinful man to save,
To triumph o'er the grave,
And bring the wand'rer home to God.
3
He heals the sin-distrest;
The weary come for rest;
And old and young may learn His love.
To Him they gladly press,
He every one doth bless,
And one and all His goodness prove.
4
Then onward to the cross,
Through toil, and grief, and loss,
The Man of sorrows wends His way;
To sheathe the judgement sword,
The wrath He there endured,
And now is crowned in brightest day.
5
Come to Him, sinner come!
Nor longer from Him roam;
Come as you are in all your sin;
Sad, guilty, helpless, lost,
Tried, troubled, tempest-tossed, -
By Christ, the door, now enter in.
