Well The Redeemers Gone


Well, the Redeemer’s gone
T’ appear before our God,
To sprinkle o’er the flaming throne
With his atoning blood.

No fiery vengeance now,
Nor burning wrath comes down;
If justice call for sinners’ blood,
The Saviour shows his own.

Before his father’s eye
Our humble suit he moves,
The Father lays his thunder by,
And looks, and smiles, and loves.

Now may our joyful tongues
Our Maker’s honor sing,
Jesus the priest receives our songs,
And bears them to the King.

[We bow before his face,
And sound his glories high,
“Hosanna to the God of grace
That lays his thunder by.]

“On earth thy mercy reigns,
And triumphs all above;”
But, Lord, how weak are mortal strains
To speak immortal love!
