Hail! Thou Once Despised JesusBy J. Bakewell (1721-1819)
HAIL! Thou once despised Jesus;
Praises loudly now we sing;
Thou didst suffer, Lord, to save us,
Nigh to God Thine own to bring.
Hail! once lowly Man of sorrows,
Bearer of our grief and shame;
Graced in Thee by God's own favor,
Life we have in Thy blest Name.
Jesus, hail! enthroned in glory,
There in majesty divine,
There in heav'n our hearts accord Thee
Every honor that is Thine;
Now for us in patience waiting,
With Thy loved ones all to share:
We that joy anticipating
Till in glory we appear.
Soon we shall, as come to glory,
Thy transcendent grace relate,
Gladly sing th' amazing story
Of Thy dying love so great.
In that blessed contemplation
We for evermore shall dwell,
Praise with deepest adoration
Love that none below can tell.
