O blessed day when first was poured
The blood of our redeeming Lord!
O blessed day when first began
His sufferings borne for sinful man!
Scarce enter’d on this life of woe.
His infant blood begins to flow;
A foretaste of His death He feels,
An earnest of His love reveals.
From heav’n descending to fulfil
The bidding of His Father’s Will.
A victim even now He lies
Before the day of sacrifice.
For love of us His woes begin;
The Sinless suffers for our sin;
The Law’s great Maker for our aid
Obedient to the Law is made.
The wound He through the Law endures
Our freedom from that Law secures
Henceforth a holier law prevails,
That law of love, which never fails.
Lord, circumcise our hearts, we pray,
And take what is not Thine away.
Write Thine own name upon our hearts,
Thy Law within our inward parts.
O Lord, the Virgin-born, to Thee
Eternal praise and glory be,
Whom with the Father we adore
And Holy Ghost forevermore.
