The One for Whom We Wait

 •  1 min. read
O blessed Lord, what hast Thou done?
How vast a ransom given?
Thyself of God th' eternal Son,
The Lord of earth and heaven.
Thy rather, in His gracious love,
Did spare Thee from His side;
And Thou didst stoop to bear above,
At such a cost, Thy bride.
Lord, while our souls in faith repose
Upon Thy precious blood,
Peace like an even river flows,
And mercy, like a flood.
But boundless joy shall fill our hearts,
When, gazing on Thy face,
We fully see what faith imparts,
And glory crowns Thy grace.
Unseen, we love Thee; clear Thy name;
But when our eyes behold,
With joyful wonder we'll exclaim,
“The half had not been told!”
For Thou exceedest all the fame
Our ears have ever heard;
How happy we who know Thy name,
And trust Thy faithful Word!
O Lord, we adore Thee!
For Thou art the slain One
That livest forever,
Enthroned in heaven;
O Lord, we adore Thee!
For Thou hast redeemed us;
Our title to glory
We read in Thy blood.
O God, we acknowledge
Thy greatness, Thy glory!
For of Thee are all things
On earth and in heaven;
How rich is Thy mercy!
How great Thy salvation!
We bless Thee, we praise Thee:
Amen and Amen.
