O sacred Savior who alone,
In perfect living did atone,
The covenant of works achieved,
And thru’ Your works the Father’s pleased.
Yet You alone can this attain,
For none of us are without blame,
And falling from the moral path,
We bring upon ourselves God’s wrath.
O sacred Savior You excel,
Beyond the Law that damns to hell,
And You its missing parts provide.
You damned Yourself to save Your bride.
The covenant of grace produced,
Your blood upon the Law improved,
And graciously You made a way,
That lawfully we may be saved.
O sacred Savior praise to You!
Both perfect and perfecter, too.
Amen! All-worthy is the Christ,
The Righteous One who makes us right.
Yes, You have ripped apart the veil,
Perfecting where all others failed,
All majesty, all praise, all might,
Belong forever to the Christ!
