Jesus Lord, Almighty Saviour

by G. de Mattos

Tune: Melbourne
* Verses 2,3

1 JESUS Lord, Almighty Saviour,
Bowed in death on Calvary's tree!
Darkest hour of bitter judgment
Borne to set Thy people free!
Sweet our portion,
As we thus remember Thee.

2 From the highest height of glory
To the cross of deepest shame,
Thus accomplishing redemption
Jesus in His pity came;
Precious Saviour,
We adore Thy matchless name.

3 From the darkness and the distance,
From the crushing sense of sin,
Blessed Lord, Thou now hast freed us,
By Thy blood hast made us clean;
In Thy beauty
Now Thy ransomed ones are seen.
