We sing the praise of Him


    • We sing the praise of Him who died, 
    • of Him who died upon the cross; 
    • the sinner‟s hope let men deride, 
    • for this we count the world but lost. 

    • Inscribed upon the cross we see, 
    • in shining letters, ‘God is love’; 
    • He bears our sins upon the tree, 
    • He brings us mercy from above. 

    • The cross! it takes our guilt away, 
    • it holds the fainting spirit up; 
    • it cheers with hope the gloomy day 
    • and sweetens every bitter cup. 

    • It makes the coward spirit brave, 
    • and nerves the feeble arm for fight; 
    • it takes the terror from the grave, 
    • and gilds the bed of death with light. 

    • The balm of life, the cure of woe, 
    • the measure and the pledge of love; 
    • the sinner‟s refuge here below, 
    • the angels‟ theme in heaven above.
