Christ My Song - 1114
The Saviour, Jesus, left the skies - Jesus, The Saviour
(Hannah K. Burlingham/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
Jesus, The Saviour.
2. 'Twas God's great love sent forth his Son
for sinners once to die,
that hopeless ones, far off, undone,
might be brought nigh.
3. For sin he yielded up his breath,
that he the lost might save;
he took the deadly sting from death –
he spoiled the grave.
4. 'Twas "for our sins" the Lamb was slain,
the Lord was crucified;
he died, was buried, rose again,
5. Yes, Jesus is the mighty God,
the Holy Son of man;
none other name is told abroad
in God's great plan.
6. He bears the glory evermore,
who bore the cross of shame;
his sufferings for sin are o'er:
praise ye his Name!
Hannah K. Burlingham, Wayside Songs, 1901, 132-133.
