Christ My Song - 1103
Wondrous is the simple story - The Death of Christ
(Hannah K. Burlingham/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
The Death of Christ.
1. Wondrous is the simple story
of the blessèd Saviour's death,
how the Lord of life and glory
yielded, on the cross, his breath,
sinless, as the Scripture saith! PDF - Midi
2. There he bore that awful burden,
wrath of God, because of sin;
stooped, in grace, the costly guerdon
of eternal life to win;
access, too, the veil within!
3. Lost by Adam's first transgression,
we in death and darkness lay;
Jesus, making full confession,
for us kept his victor way;
sins and sin to put away.
4. Perfect reconciliation
Jesus evermore hath made;
Head o'er all the new creation,
see him now, in light arrayed;
all the purchase-price is paid!
5. All the righteous God requirèd
Jesus hath divinely done;
all the Father's heart desirèd
he accomplished through the Son!
Glory to the Three in One!
