Christ My Song - 1154
We sing of him who died
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
We sing of him who died.
"Who loved me, and gave himself for me." (Galatians 2,20)
1. We sing of him who died,
who died in love to us;
the Lord of life was crucified;
he saved his people thus. PDF - Midi
2. This proof of love he gave;
no greater could be giv'n;
he shed his precious blood to save
and bring his saints to heav'n.
3. Redeemed from earth and hell,
and made the heirs of heav'n;
how much they owe, what tongue can tell,
whose sins are all forgiv'n?
4. A glorious hope thy have;
a hope that grace supplies;
a hope that looks beyond the grave,
of joy that never dies.
5. Exalt we then his name,
whom all in heav'n adore;
and let us join to praise the Lamb,
the Lamb for evermore.
Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 202.
