#145: Hail, Thou Once-Despised Jesus!

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Hail, Thou once-despised Jesus” Hail, Thou Gallilean King!

Thou didst suffer to release us; Thou didst free salvation bring.

Hail, Thou agonizing Savior, Bearer of our sin and shame!

By Thy merits we find favor, Life is given thru Thy name.

2

Paschal Lamb, by God appointed, All our sins on Thee were laid;

By almighty love anointed, Thou hast full atonement made.

All Thy people are forgiven Thru 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 Till in glory we appear.

4

Worship, honor, 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 Savior’s merits, Help to chant Immanuel’s praise.
