When Jesus first to res-cue man,
Arose and left his Father's throne;
Love was the work, the work on which he came,
And guardian angels knew the same.
"Go die my son; my Son go suffer pain,
And then re-turn to me a-gain."

See, Jesus climbs up Calvary's hill,
To do his Father's blessed will;
The Jews with spears, with spears they pierce amain,
His precious side; he dies in pain!
"Now dies my Son, my Son now suffers pain,
And shall return to me again."

"Arise, my Son, once more obey,
Go, angels, roll the stone away;
My Son is coming, is coming back again,
And shall with me for ever reign."
Now reign my Son, Jehovah, reign above;
And so shall all, who will thee love.
