Watts.

1. Now to the Lord that makes us know
The wonders of his dying love,
Be humble honors paid below,
And strains of nobler praise above,
And strains of nobler praise above.

2. 'Twas he that cleans'd our foulest sins,
And wash'd us in his richest blood;
'Tis he that makes us priest and kings,
And brings us rebels near to God,
And brings us rebels near to God.

3. To Jesus our atoning Priest,
To Jesus our eternal King,
Be everlasting power confessed,
And every tongue his glory sing,
And every tongue his glory sing.

4. Behold, on flying clouds he comes,
And every eye shall see him move:
Though with our sins we pierced him once,
Now he displays his pardoning love.

5. The unbelieving world shall wail,
While we rejoice to see the day:
Come, Lord, nor let thy promise fail,
Nor let thy chariot long delay.
