HYMN LVIII.

8.7.8.7.8.8.7.7

James Montgomery

Christ's Mission.

The world in condemnation lay,

And death, from Adam reigning,

O'er man maintain'd remorseless sway,

While sin his soul enchaining,

Foredoom'd the second death to all

That shared the ruins of the fall;

But Christ's triumphant mission

Redeem'd us from perdition.

63

Then round His manger let us throng,

Attend Him in temptation,

Carry our cross with joy along

His path of tribulation;

With Him to Olivet retire,

On Calvary at His feet expire;

Then, on Mount Zion seated,

Our bliss shall be completed.
