The Gospel Stated.

The Gospel Worthy of all Acceptation.

Jesus, th’eternal Son of God,

Whom seraphim obey,

The bosom of the Father leaves,

And enters human clay.

___

Into our sinful world He comes,

The messenger of grace,

And on the bloody tree expires,

A victim in our place.

___

Transgressors of the deepest stain,

In Him salvation find:

His blood removes the foulest guilt,

His Spirit heals the mind.

___

That Jesus saves from sin and hell,

Is truth divinely sure;

And on this rock our faith may rest

Immovably secure.

___

Oh let these tidings be received

With universal joy,

And let the high angelic praise

Our tuneful powers employ!

___

“Glory to God who gave His Son

To bear our shame and pain;

Hence peace on earth, and grace to men,

In endless blessings reign.”

Thomas Gibbons, 1769

From Our Own Hymn-Book: A Collection of Psalms and Hymns for Public,  Social, and Private Worship

Compiled by C.H. Spurgeon and used at The Metropolitan Tabernacle, London, England
