On wings of love came down,

And wept, and bled, and died;
What he endured, O who can tell.

The mansion of the dead ;
And thence his mighty foet
In glorious triumph led;
Up through the sky the Conqueror rode,
And reigns on higli, the Saviour— God.

The debt we owe thy love ;

Our gratitude approve :
Our hearts — our all to thee we give:
•The gift, though small, wilt thou receive.
