XLII. Redeeming Love

1 Now begin the heavenly theme,
Sing aloud in Jesu's name;
Ye who his salvation prove
Triumph in redeeming love.

2 Ye who see the Father's grace
Beaming in the Saviour's face
As to Canaan on ye move
Praise and bless redeeming love.

3 Mourning souls, dry up your tears,
Banish all your guilty fears,;
See your guilt and curse remove,
Cancell'd by redeeming love.

4 Ye, alas! who long have been
Willing slaves of death and sin,
Now from bliss no longer rove,
Stop and taste redeeming love.

5 Welcome all, by sin opprest,
Welcome, to his sacred rest,
Nothing brought him from above,
Nothing but redeeming love.

6 When his spirit leads us home,
When we to his glory come,
We shall all the fulness prove,
Of our Lord's redeeming love.
