49: CHRIST delivered us when bound

by William Cowper (1731-1800)

sung to St. Bees midi score
by J. B. Dykes (1823-1876)

1 CHRIST delivered us when bound,
And, when wounded, healed our wound,
Sought us wandering, set us right,
Turned our darkness into light.

2 Can a mother's tender care
Cease towards the child she bare?
Yes, she may forgetful prove;
He will never cease to love.

3 His is an unchanging love,
Higher than the heights above,
Deeper than the depths beneath,
Free and faithful, strong as death.

4 We shall see His glory soon,
When the work of grace is done,
Partners of His throne above;
Such to us His wondrous love!

5 This alone is our complaint,
That our love is weak and faint;
Yet we love Him, and adore,
O for grace to love Him more!
