Hymn of the day

by Richard on December 30, 2012

O astonishing grace,
That the reprobate race
Should be so reconciled!
What a wonder of wonders that God is a child!

The Creator of all,
To repair our sad fall,
From his heaven stoops down,
Lays hold of our nature, and joins to his own.

Our Immanuel came,
The whole world to redeem,
And incarnated shewed
That man may again be united to God!

And shall we not hope,
After God to wake up,
His nature to know?
His nature is sinless perfection below.

To this heavenly prize,
By faith let us rise
To his image ascend,
Apprehended of God let us God apprehend.

Charles Wesley
