Hail Thou Once Despisèd Jesus : Lyrics
1. 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 thro’ thy name.
2. 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.
3. Jesus, hail! enthroned in glory,
There forever to abide;
All the heav’nly 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,
‘Til in glory we appear.
4 Worship, honour, pow’r, 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.
