Lyrics

The angels gazed to see their God,
A child of man to sinners given!
Again, to see His streaming blood,
They gazed—and silence was in Heaven!
The saints admire with strange delight
Their dying Lord enthroned above,
And praise the length, and breadth and height,
And depth of His stupendous love.
