1 How great the wisdom, power and grace
Which in redemption shine!
The heavenly host with joy confess
The work is all divine,
The work is all divine.
2 Before His feet they cast their crowns–
Those crowns which Jesus gave–
And with ten thousand thousand tongues
Proclaim His power to save,
Proclaim His power to save.
3 They tell the triumphs of His cross,
The sufferings which He bore:
How low He stooped, how high He rose,
And rose to stoop no more,
And rose to stoop no more.
4 O let them still their voices raise,
And still their songs renew:
Salvation well deserves the praise
Of men and angels, too,
Of men and angels, too.
