251: LORD Jesus Christ, our Saviour Thouby T. E. Purdom (c.1852-1942)
1 LORD Jesus Christ, our Saviour Thou,
With joy we worship Thee,
We know Thou hast redeemed us,
By dying on the tree.
2 We know the love that brought Thee down,
Down from that bliss on high;
To meet our ruined souls in need,
On Calvary's cross to die.
3 Our Saviour Jesus --- Lord Thou art,
Eternal is Thy love;
Eternal, too, our songs of praise,
When with Thee, Lord, above.
4 E'en now we praise the grace divine,
The love that shines in Thee;
The rich One Thou --- for us made poor,
By death to set us free.
5 We praise, we worship, we adore,
As round Thyself we meet;
Thy beauty, Lord, our souls transports,
While bowing at Thy feet.
6 Our theme of praise art Thou alone,
Thy cross, Thy work, Thy word;
Oh! who can fathom all Thy love,
Thou living blessed Lord?
