*Promised deliverer, humanity’s Redeemer Rendered a sacrifice, He paid with His blood Divine justice on behalf of us sinners Atonement was made so God could forgive God could forgive Long-anticipated, came bearing our burden Enduring the Father’s wrath that was due to mankind Humbly dependent, fully obedient To the point of His death and God’s will was done God’s will was done* In agony and love, He freely submitted To the stripes and the thorns, to a thieves’ crucifixion, To the mocks and the scorns when He did nothing wrong Whom God would make known Christ in you, the Hope of Glory Horn of salvation, high and mighty tower Eternal inheritance to the praise of His name Jesus Messiah, Son of God the Savior Our rock and our shield, our fortress, our strength In Whom we can trust In agony and love, He freely submitted To the stripes and the thorns, to a thieves’ crucifixion, To the mocks and the scorns when He did nothing wrong Whom God would make known Christ in you, the Hope of Glory Christ in me, the Hope of Glory Our exceeding Hope of Glory Lift our hands in Hope of Glory *Adapted from Hannah, John D., Our Legacy: A History of Christian Doctrine. Colorado Springs: NavPress, 2001, page 31.
