162. Glory be to Jesus D


Freidrich Filitz, 1847


Tr. Edward Caswall, 1857;


Glory be to Jesus,

Who in bitter pains

Poured for me the life-blood

From his sacred veins!

Grace and life eternal

In that blood I find,

Blest be his compassion

Infinitely kind!

Blest through endless ages

Be the precious stream,

Which from sin and sorrow

Doth the world redeem!

Abel's blood for vengeance

Pleaded to the skies;

But the blood of Jesus

For our pardon cries.

Oft as earth exulting

Wafts its praise on high

Angel hosts, rejoicing,

Make their glad reply.

Lift ye then your voices;

Swell the mighty flood;

Louder still and louder

Praise the precious blood.
