Victim DivineThe Faith We Sing Number 2259
Text: Charles Wesley
Music: Isaac B. Woodbury
Tune: SELENA, Meter: 88.88.88
1. Victim Divine, thy grace we claim,
while thus thy precious death we show;
once offered up, a spotless Lamb,
in thy great temple here below,
thou didst for all our kind atone,
and standest now before the throne.
2. Thou standest in the holiest place,
as now for guilty sinners slain;
thy blood of sprinkling speaks, and prays,
all prevalent for helpless ones;
thy blood is still our ransom found,
and spreads salvation all around.
3. The smoke of thy atonement here
darkened the sun and rent the veil,
made the new way to heaven appear,
and showed the great Invisible;
well pleased in thee our God looked down,
and called his rebels to a crown.
4. He still respects thy sacrifice,
its savor sweet doth always please;
the offering smokes through earth and skies,
diffusing life, and joy, and peace;
to these thy lower courts it comes,
and fills them with divine perfumes.
5. We need not go up to heaven,
to bring the long sought Savior down;
thou art to all already given,
thou dost e'en now thy banquet crown;
To every faithful soul appear,
and show thy real presence here!
