“Let Thy hand be upon the Man of Thy right hand, upon the Son of Man whom Thou madest strong for Thyself” (Psalm 80:17). “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid… The prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in Me” (John 14:27-30).
The peace our Savior freely gave
Was purchased at a great expense.
The awful price He paid to save
Our soul’s was death in our defense.
There was a foe that He would face:
This world’s prince was drawing near.
Our Savior fought to give us grace;
The battle lines were surely clear.
The world’s prince would stake his claim,
Accusing every soul of sin,
Except in Christ, O praise His name,
Who for our souls would fight and win!
Let not your heart be troubled then,
And neither let it be afraid,
Christ Jesus died for sinful men,
And for our peace He surely paid.
Behold the Man at God’s right hand
Who rose in triumph from the dead
Was cursed for us that He might stand
And bear God’s judgment in our stead!
O Lord, You died to purchase peace
For those deserving condemnation.
O may our gratitude increase
For all You did for our salvation!
