Christ My Song - 1154
We sing of him who died
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
We sing of him who died.
"Who loved me, and gave himself for me." (Galatians 2,20)
2. This proof of love he gave;
no greater could be giv'n;
he shed his precious blood to save
and bring his saints to heav'n.
3. Redeemed from earth and hell,
and made the heirs of heav'n;
how much they owe, what tongue can tell,
whose sins are all forgiv'n?
4. A glorious hope thy have;
a hope that grace supplies;
a hope that looks beyond the grave,
of joy that never dies.
5. Exalt we then his name,
whom all in heav'n adore;
and let us join to praise the Lamb,
the Lamb for evermore.
Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 202.
