The Book of Praise.
Hail, Thou once despised Jesus,
Hail, thou Galilean king ! Thou didst suffer to release us,
Thou didst free salvation bring: Hail, Thou agonizing Saviour,
Bearer of our sin and shame ; By Thy merits we find favour ;
Life is given through Thy Name !
Paschal Lamb, by God appointed;
All our sins were on Thee laid ; By Almighty Love anointed,
Thou hast full atonement made : All Thy people are forgiven
Through the virtue of Thy Blood; Opened is the gate of Heaven ;
Peace is made 'twixt man and God.
Jesus, hail! enthroned in glory,
There for ever to abide ; All the heavenly hosts adore Thee,
Seated at Thy Father's side. There for sinners Thou art pleading ;
There Thou dost our place prepare ; Ever for us interceding
Till in glory we appear.
Worship, honour, power, and blessing,
Thou art worthy to receive ; Loudest praises, without ceasing.
Meet it is for us to give ! Help, ye bright angelic spirits,
Bring your sweetest, noblest lays ; Help to sing our Saviour's merits,
Help to chant Immanuel's praise !
