Hail, Thou Once Despised Jesus
Hymn lyrics and .mp3 Download
1. Hail, thou once despised Jesus! Hail, thou Galilean King! Thou didst suffer to release us; thou didst free salvation bring. Hail, thou universal Savior, who hast borne our sin and shame! By thy merits we find favor; life is given through thy name.
2. Paschal Lamb, by God appointed, all our sins on thee were laid; by almighty love anointed, thou hast full atonement made. Every sin may be forgiven through the virtue of thy blood; opened is the gate of heaven, reconciled are we with God.
3. Jesus, hail! enthroned in glory, there forever to abide; all the heavenly hosts adore thee, seated at thy Father's side. There for sinners thou art pleading; there thou dost our place prepare; thou for saints art interceding till in glory they appear.
4. Worship, honor, power, and blessing Christ is worthy to receive; loudest praises, without ceasing, right it is for us to give. Help, ye bright angelic spirits, bring your sweetest, noblest lays; help to sing of Jesus' merits, help to chant Emmanuel's praise!
