Lord Jesus Christ, our Saviour Thou,
 
With joy we worship Thee,
 
We know Thou hast redeemèd us,
 
By dying on the tree.

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.
2 Corinthians 8:9; John 17:5; John 19:16-30

Our Saviour Jesus—Lord Thou art,
 
Eternal is Thy love;
 
Eternal, too, our songs of praise
 
When with Thee, Lord, above.
Matthew 1:21; Acts 2:36; Jeremiah 31:3; Revelation 5:8-9

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.
2 Corinthians 8:9
5
We praise, we worship, we adore,
 
As round Thyself we meet;
 
Thy beauty, Lord, our souls transports,
 
While bowing at Thy feet.
Matthew 18:20; Psalm 27:4
6
Our theme of praise art Thou alone,
 
Thy cross, Thy work, Thy Word:
 
Oh! who can fathom all Thy love,
 
Thou living, blessèd Lord?

“Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him away. And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha. Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst. And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS. This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin. Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, Write not, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of the Jews. Pilate answered, What I have written I have written. Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also his coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout. They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them, and for my vesture they did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did. Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home. After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst. Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a spunge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth. When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.” (John 19:16-30)
“And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.” (Matthew 1:21)

“The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.” (Jeremiah 31:3)
“And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odors, which are the prayers of saints. And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation.” (Revelation 5:8-9)
“For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.” (2 Corinthians 8:9)

“And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.” (Ephesians 3:19)
