Redeemed Hymn 153 – Great High Priest, We See Thee Stooping

“And He shall bear their iniquities” -Isa. 53:11

1 Great High Priest, we see Thee stooping,

With our names upon Thy breast;

In the garden groaning, drooping,

To the ground with horrors prest:

Wond’ring angels stood confounded,

To behold their Maker thus;

And can we remain unwounded,

When we know ’twas all for us?


2 Nothing but Thy blood, O Jesus,

Can our wayward souls convert;

Nothing else from guilt release us,

Nothing else can melt the heart,

Law and terrors do but harden,

All the while they work alone;

But the sense of blood-bought pardon

Can dissolve a heart of stone.


3 Jesus, all our consolations

Flow from Thee, the sovereign good;

Love, and faith, and hope, and patience,

All are purchas’d by Thy blood:

From Thy fullness we receive them;

We have nothing of our own;

Freely Thou delight’s to give them

To the needy who have none.
