"O Beautiful"

O beautiful in Heaven’s light,
How can we be with You?
For contrast us with holiness
There’s nothing we can do!
Jesus the Christ! Jesus the Christ!
You took our sin away!
You nailed it to a rugged cross
And gave us a new day!

O beautiful Thy sacrifice,
Thou perfect lamb of peace:
Gave up your life and forgave us,
Revoking satan’s lease!
Jesus the Christ! Jesus the Christ!
Redeemer of the lost!
And come quickly to claim thy Bride,
Those ransomed at great cost!

O beautiful Thou holy Lord,
We worship Thee above,
For wonder and in gratitude
Your everlasting love!
Jesus the Christ! Jesus the Christ!
God shed His grace through Thee
And crown thy brow with righteousness
From birth to victory!
