Lyrics

  1. 1. How great the wisdom and the love
    That filled the courts on high
    And sent the Savior from above
    To suffer, bleed, and die!
  2. 2. His precious blood he freely spilt;
    His life he freely gave,
    A sinless sacrifice for guilt,
    A dying world to save.
  3. 3. By strict obedience Jesus won
    The prize with glory rife:
    "Thy will, O God, not mine be done,"
    Adorned his mortal life.
  4. 4. He marked the path and led the way,
    And ev'ry point defines
    To light and life and endless day
    Where God's full presence shines.
  5. 5. In mem'ry of the broken flesh
    We eat the broken bread
    And witness with the cup, afresh,
    Our faith in Christ, our Head.
  6. 6. How great, how glorious, how complete
    Redemption's grand design,
    Where justice, love, and mercy meet
    In harmony divine!
  7. Text: Eliza R. Snow, 1804-1887
