Christ My Song - 1103
Wondrous is the simple story - The Death of Christ
(Hannah K. Burlingham/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
The Death of Christ.
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!
Hannah K. Burlingham, Wayside Songs, 1901, 118-119.
