1 And did the holy and the just,
The sovereign of the skies,
Stoop down to wretchedness and dust,
That guilty man might rise?

2 Yes, the Redeemer left his throne--
His radiant throne on high--
Surprising mercy! love unknown!
To suffer, bleed, and die.

3 To dwell with misery here below,
The Saviour left the skies,
And sank to wretchedness and woe,
That worthless man might rise.

4 He took the dying traitor's place,
And suffered in his stead:
For sinful man--oh, wondrous grace!
For sinful man he bled.

5 O Lord, what heavenly wonders dwell
In thine atoning blood!
By this are sinners saved from hell,
And rebels brought to God.

Notes

And did the Holy and the Just. Anne Steele. [Redemption.] A more than usually successful hymn by this writer. It appeared in her Poems, etc., 1760 and 1780, vol. i. p. 175, in 6 stanzas of 4 lines, entitled, "The wonders of Redemption." It is based on 1 Pet. iii. 18. It was also included in Sedgwick's reprint of her Hymns, 1863, p. 108. It was first brought into common use by Ash and Evans in their Baptist Bristol Collection, 1769. Its use in Great Britain is limited, but in America it is found in many collections.
