Thou Son of God and Son of Man

1 Thou Son of God and Son of man,
Belov’d, ador’d Immamiel;
Who didst, before all time began,
In glory with thy Father dwell ;

2 We sing thy love, who didst in time,
For us humanity assume;
To answer for the sinner’s crime,
To suffer in the sinner s room.

3 The ransom’d church thy glory sings;
The hosts of heaven thy will obey:
And, Lord of lords, and King of kings
We celebrate thy blessed sway.

4 A servant’s form didst thou sustain ;
And with delight the law obey ;
And then endure amazing pain,
Whilst all our sorrows on thee lay.

5 Blest Saviour ! we are wholly thine ;
So freely lov’d, so dearly bought:
Our souls to thee would we resign,—
To thee would subject every thought.

John Ryland, Hymns and Verses
