Majestic Sweetness ~ hymn

This is just a gentle melody that reminds of what beauty we have been gifted through a Savior that is better than everything else. His response to me is a blessing that I cannot afford to ignore or turn away from.

Majestic sweetness

Majestic Sweetness

words: Samuel Stennett (1787)
music: Greatorex’s Collection (1851)

1 Majestic sweetness sits enthroned
upon the Savior’s brow;
His head with radiant glories crowned,
His lips with grace o’erflow.

2 No mortal can with Him compare,
among the sons of men;
fairer is He than all the fair
who fill the heav’nly train.

3 He saw me plunged in deep distress,
and flew to my relief;
for me He bore the shameful cross,
and carried all my grief.

4 To Him I owe my life and breath,
and all the joys I have;
He makes me triumph over death,
and saves me from the grave.

5 Since from Thy bounty I receive
such proofs of love divine,
Had I a thousand hearts to give,
Lord, they should all be Thine.

      Breaks are good for us. If you pick it up again, it will be fresher and newer.
