The One by whom Man’s course began
And through whom Man has breath
Because of, and in love for, Man
Poured out His soul to death.
Now grace can overcome sin’s power
Like an advancing flood
Since Jesus, in that solemn hour,
Poured out His precious blood.
Ascended then to God’s right hand,
Acclaimed by heaven’s host
He thought of all His lovers and
Poured out the Holy Ghost.
He is in heaven but His name
Is loved by saints in light -
This is an ointment, they exclaim,
Poured out for our delight.
