Hymn 78

John Newton


On one stone shall be seven eyes.

Zech 3:998

Jesus Christ, the Lord’s anointed,

Who his blood for sinners spilt;

Is the Stone by God appointed,

And the church is on him built:

He delivers all who trust him from their guilt.

Many eyes at once are fixed

On a person so divine;

Love, with aweful justice mixed,

In his great redemption shine:

Mighty JESUS! give me leave to call thee mine.

By the Father’s eye approved,

Lo, a voice is heard from heav’n,

Mt 3:17 97

“Sinners, this is my Beloved,

For your ransom freely given:

All offences, for his sake, shall be forgiven.”

Angels with their eyes pursued him,

1Tim 3:16

When he left his glorious throne;

With astonishment they viewed him

Put the form of servant on:

Angels worshipped him who was on earth unknown.

Satan and his host amazed,

Saw this stone in Zion laid;

Jesus, though to death abased,

Bruised the subtle serpent’s head:

Jn 12:31

When to save us, on the cross his blood he shed.

When a guilty sinner sees him,

While he looks his soul is healed;

Soon this sight from anguish frees him,

And imparts a pardon sealed:

Jn 3:15

May this Savior be to all our hearts revealed!

With desire and admiration,

All his blood–bought flock behold;

Him who wrought out their salvation,

And enclosed them in his fold:

1Pet 2:7

Yet their warmest love, and praises, are too cold.

By the eye of carnal reason

Many view him with disdain;

Ps 118:22

How will they abide the season

When he’ll come with all his train:

To escape him then they’ll wish, but wish in vain.

How their hearts will melt and tremble

When they hear his aweful voice;

Rev 1:7

But his saints he’ll then assemble,

As his portion and his choice;

And receive them to his everlasting joys.
