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
