Anne Steele, 1760
Enslaved by sin and bound in chains,|
Beneath its dreadful tyrant sway,
And doomed to everlasting pains,
We wretched, guilty captives lay.
2. Nor gold nor gems could buy our peace,
3. Jesus, the Lord, the mighty God,|
An all-sufficient ransom paid.
O matchless price! His precious blood
For vile, rebellious traitors shed.
4. Jesus the Sacrifice became
5. Amazing goodness! Love divine!|
Oh, may our grateful hearts adore
The matchless grace nor yield to sin
Nor wear its cruel fetters more!
