53. The Son--He Left God's Throne Above

by C. Wesley
The Son—He left God's throne above
(So free, so infinite His grace!)
Emptied Himself, and then in love
Bled for our lost, our ruined race:
'Tis mercy, all beyond our thought,
That us to God in Jesus brought.
John 17:5; Psalm 45:8; Romans 3:24; Ephesians 1:7; Philippians 2:7; Ephesians 2:4; 1 Peter 3:18
No condemnation now we dread,
Jesus is ours, prepared our place,
Our life in Him, our hidden Head,
Himself our righteousness through grace,
Bold we approach the heavenly throne,
Heirs of the crown He for us won.
Romans 8:1; John 14:2; Colossians 3:3; Colossians 1:18; 1 Corinthians 1:30; Hebrews 4:16; Romans 8:17
