1 Hail, O once rejected Jesus!
Hail, O Galilean King!
You have suffered to release us
and your free salvation bring.
Hail, O agonizing Saviour,
bearer of our sin and shame,
by your merits we find favour,
life is given through your name.

2 Spotless Lamb, by God appointed,
all our sins on you were laid;
by almighty love anointed
full atonement you have made.
All your people are forgiven
through the virtue of your blood;
opened is the gate of heaven,
man is reconciled with God.

3 Jesus! Hail, enthroned in glory,
there for ever to abide;
all the heavenly hosts adore you
seated at your Father's side.
There for sinners you are pleading
and our place you now prepare;
always for us interceding,
till in glory we appear.

4 Worship, honour, power and blessing
you are worthy to receive;
loudest praises, without ceasing,
right it is for us to give.
Help us, bright angelic spirits
joined with ours, your voices raise;
help to show our Saviour's merits,
help to sing Immanuel's praise.
