Who Is This That Comes From Edom All His


Who is this that comes from Edom,
All His raiment stained with blood,
To the slave proclaiming freedom,
Bringing and bestowing good;
Glorious in the garb He wears,
Glorious in the spoils He bears?

‘Tis the Saviour, now victorious,
Travelling onward in His might;
‘Tis the Saviour, O how glorious,
To His people, is the sight!
Satan conquered, and the grave,
Jesus now is strong to save,

Why that blood His raiment staining?
‘Tis the blood of many slain;
Of His foes there’s none remaining,
None, the contest to maintain:
Fallen they are, no more to rise;
All their glory prostrate lies.

Mighty Victor, reign for ever;
Wear the crown so dearly won;
Never shall Thy people, never,
Cease to sing what Thou hast done;
Thou hast fought Thy people’s foes;
Thou wilt heal Thy people’s woes.

Hymnal: according to the use of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America,
