1. Hail, Thou once despised Jesus! Crown’d in cruel scorn a king!
Thou didst suffer to release us; Thou didst free salvation bring.
Hail, Thou agonizing Saviour! Bearer of our sin and shame!
By Thy merits we find favour: life is given through Thy name.

2. Lamb of God, by Him appointed, all our sins on Thee were laid;
By Almighty Love anointed, Thou redemption’s price hast paid.
All Thy people are forgiven through the virtue of Thy blood:
Opened is the gate of heaven, peace is made ‘twixt man and God.

3. Jesus, hail! enthroned in glory! there for ever to abide;
All the heav’nly hosts adore Thee, seated at Thy Father’s side;
There for sinners Thou art pleading; there Thou dost our place prepare,
Ever for us interceding, till in glory we appear.

4. Worship, honour, pow’r and blessing Thou art worthy to receive;
Loudest praises, without ceasing it is meet for us to give;
Help, ye bright angelic spirits, bring your sweetest, noblest lays;
Help to sing our Saviour’s merits, help to chant Immanuel’s praise.
