Our Great Saviour

“In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets
at many times and in various ways,
but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son,
whom he appointed heir of all things,
and through whom also he made the universe.
The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation
of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word.
After he had provided purification for sins,
he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.
So he became as much superior to the angels
as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs.”
Hebrews 1:1-4 (NIV)

In our verses today we have a wonderful description of our Lord. The hymns we sing to the Saviour need to be full of rich descriptions of our Beloved Redeemer, The following hymn is one of the best I have ever found. Please read it with a reverent heart as you give praise to the Lord Jesus.

Jesus, wondrous Savior!
Christ, of kings the King!
Angels fall before Thee,
Prostrate, worshipping;
Fairest they confess Thee
In the heav’n above.
We would sing Thee fairest
Here in hymns of love.

All earth’s flowing pleasures
Were a wintry sea;
Heav’n itself without Thee
Dark as night would be.
Lamb of God! Thy glory
Is the light above.
Lamb of God! Thy glory
Is the life of love.

Life is death, if severed
From Thy throbbing heart.
Death with life abundant
At Thy touch would start.
Worlds and men and angels
All consist in Thee,
Yet Thou camest to us
In humility.

Jesus! all perfections
Rise and end in Thee;
Brightness of God’s glory
Thou, eternally.
Favored beyond measure
They Thy face who see;
May we, gracious Savior,
Share this ecstasy.
