178. Great is the gospel of our glorious God

Author: W Vernon Higham

Great is the gospel of our glorious God,
where mercy met the anger of God’s rod;
a penalty was paid and pardon bought
and sinners lost at last to him were brought:

O let the praises of my heart be thine,
for Christ has died that I may call him mine,
that I may sing with those who dwell above,
adoring, praising Jesus, King of love.

2. Great is the mystery of godliness,
great is the work of God’s own holiness;
it moves my soul and causes me to long
for greater joys than to the earth belong:

3. The Spirit vindicated Christ our Lord,
and angels sang with joy and sweet accord;
the nations heard, a dark world flamed with light—
when Jesus rose in glory and in might:
