lyrics

VERSE 1
Dear Christians one and all rejoice
With exultation springing
And with united heart and voice
And holy rapture singing
Proclaim the wonders God hath done
How His right arm the victory won
Right dearly it hath cost Him
Right dearly it hath cost Him

VERSE 2
My good works could avail me naught
For they with sin were stained
Free will against God's judgment fought
And dead to good remained
Grief drove me to despair and I
Had nothing left me but to die
To hell I fast was sinking
To hell I fast was sinking

VERSE 3
God saw in His eternal grace
My sorrow out of measure
He thought upon His tenderness
To save was His good pleasure
He turned to me a Father’s heart
Not-small the cost to heal my smart
He gave His dearest Treasure
He gave His dearest Treasure

VERSE 4
He spoke to His beloved Son
'Tis time to take compassion
Then go bright Jewel of My crown
And bring to man salvation
From sin and sorrow set him free
Slay bitter death for him that he
May live with Thee forever
May live with Thee forever
