18: PASCHAL Lamb, by God appointedby John Bakewell (1721-1819)
1 PASCHAL Lamb, by God appointed,
All our sins were on Thee laid;
By Almighty love anointed,
Thou hast full atonement made.
All Thy people are forgiven
Through the virtue of Thy blood;
Opened is the gate of heaven,
Peace is made for us with God.
2 Saviour, hail! enthroned in glory,
There for ever to abide;
All the heavenly hosts adore Thee
Seated at Thy Father's side;
Worship, honour, power, and blessing,
Thou art worthy to receive;
Loudest praises, without ceasing,
Meet it is for us to give.
