648 (L.M.) William Tucker

Expand, my soul, arise and sing

The matchless grace of Zion's King;

His love, as ancient as His name,

Let all thy pow'rs aloud proclaim.

Chosen of old, of old approved,

In Christ eternally belov'd;

Eternally were children made,

Ere sin its baleful poison spread.

Though sin and guilt infest them here,

In Christ they all complete appear;

The whole that justice e'er demands

Received full payment from His hands.

In Him the Father never saw

The least transgression of His law;

Perfection, then, in Him we view;

His saints in Him are perfect too.

Then let our souls in Him rejoice,

As favoured objects of His choice;

Redeemed, and saved by grace, we sing

Eternal praise to Christ our King!
