O love, beyond conception great

O love, beyond conception great

Full Text

1 O love! beyond conception great,
That form'd the vast, stupendous plan!
Where all divine perfections meet
To reconcile rebellious man!

2 There wisdom shines in fullest blaze,
And justice all her rights maintains:
Astonish'd angels stoop to gaze,
While mercy o'er the guilty reigns.

3 Yes, mercy reigns, and justice too--
In Christ harmoniously they meet:
He paid to justice all her due,
And now He fills the mercy-seat.

4 Such are the wonders of our God,
And such th'amazing depths of grace,
To save from wrath's vindictive rod.
The sons of Adam's fallen race.

5 With grateful songs then let our souls
Surround our gracious Father's throne;
And all between the distant poles
His truth and mercy ever own.
