The Book of Praise.
Oh, holy, blessed Three in One ! May Thy pure light be given, That we the paths of death may shun, And keep the road to Heaven 1
John Chandler. 1837. Variation from Isaac Williams. 1834.
The Son of God ! the Lord of Life !
How wondrous are His ways ! O for a harp of thousand strings,
To sound abroad his praise ! How passing strange, to leave the seat
Of Heaven's eternal throne, And hosts of glittering Seraphim,
For guilty man alone !
And did He bow His sacred head,
And die a death of shame ? Let men and angels magnify
And bless His holy name ! O let us live in peace and love,
And cast away our pride. And crucify our sins afresh.
As He was crucified !
He rose again ; then let us rise
From sin, and Christ adore, And dwell in peace with all mankind,
And tempt the Lord no more : The Son of God! the Lord of Life !
How wondrous are His ways ! O for a harp of thousand strings
To sound abroad His praise !
George Mogridge. [ 1851.]
