The fulness of redeeming grace. 3 When from his pierced side
Came forth, in bleeding love,

Beneath its dreadful tyrant fway, And doom'd to everlasting pains,

Nor the whole world's collected ftore
A thousand worlds were all too poor. 3 Jefus the Lord, the mighty God,
An all-fufficient ransom paid ;

To rescue guilty souls from hell;
Beneath avenging justice fell.

And meekly bow'd his head and died. 'Tis finish'd's yes, the race is run,
The battle fought, the vict'ry won.
And all the ancient prophets said
In me the Saviour of mankind.
