406 (L.M.) John Kent

Without dispute, 'twixt bond or free,

Great is the gospel mystery;

How God in Christ has reconciled

Those who were once by sin defiled.

Here the divine perfections meet;

Mercy and truth each other greet;

Justice and peace in Jesus see

Unite in sacred harmony.

Great was the myst'ry, truly great,

That hell's designs should hell defeat;

But here eternal wisdom shined,

For Satan wrought what God designed.

Great was the myst'ry of that love,

When Jesus left His throne above,

Exposed His life and precious blood

To bring rebellious man to God.

Oh, deep abyss of love profound,

Too vast for angel minds to sound;

To scan the same, our thoughts are lost —

Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost!
