Scripture Verse

I beheld Satan as lightning fall from Heaven. Luke 10:18


Isaac Watts (1674–1748)

Words: Is­aac Watts, Hymns and Spi­ri­tu­al Songs 1707–09, Book 2, num­ber 97. Dis­tin­guish­ing love; or, An­gels pun­ished and man saved.

Music: Mainz­er Jo­seph Mainz­er, 1841 (🔊 pdf nwc).


From Heav’n the sin­ning angels fell,
And wrath and dark­ness chained them down;
But man, vile man, for­sook his bliss,
And mer­cy lifts him to a crown.

Amazing work of so­ver­eign grace
That could dis­ting­uish re­bels so!
Our guil­ty trea­sons called aloud
For ev­er­last­ing fet­ters, too.

To Thee, to Thee, Al­migh­ty Love,
Our souls, our­selves, our all we pay:
Millions of tongues shall sound Thy praise
On the bright hills of heav’n­ly day.

The Fall of Lucifer
Gustave Doré (1832–1883)
