O Blessed Lord, What Hast Thou Done

Tune: Manoah C.M.

1 O BLESSED Lord, what hast Thou done,
How vast a ransom given?
Thyself of God the eternal Son,
The Lord of earth and heaven.

2 Thy Father, in His gracious love,
Did spare Thee from His side:
And Thou didst stoop to bear above,
At such a cost, Thy bride.

3 Lord, while our souls in faith repose
Upon Thy precious blood,
Peace like an even river flows,
And mercy, like a flood.

4 But boundless joy shall fill our hearts,
When, gazing on Thy face,
We fully see what faith imparts,
And glory crowns Thy grace.

5 Unseen, we love Thee; dear Thy name!
But when our eyes behold,
With joyful wonder we'll exclaim,
"The half had not been told."

6 For Thou exceedest all the fame
Our ears have ever heard;
How happy we who know Thy name,
And trust Thy faithful word!
