445: JESUS Lord, Almighty Saviourby G. de Mattos
1 JESUS Lord, Almighty Saviour,
Bowed in death on Calvary's tree!
Darkest hour of bitter judgment
Borne to set Thy people free!
Sweet our portion,
As we thus remember Thee.
2 From the highest height of glory
To the cross of deepest shame,
Thus accomplishing redemption
Jesus in His pity came;
We adore Thy matchless name.
3 From the darkness and the distance,
From the crushing sense of sin,
Blessed Lord, Thou now hast freed us,
By Thy blood hast made us clean;
In Thy beauty
Now Thy ransomed ones are seen.
