Mighty to Save Lyrics

O who is this that cometh
From Edom's crimson plain,
With wounded side, with garments dyed?
O tell me now thy name.
"I that saw thy soul's distress,
A ransom gave;
I, that speak in righteousness,
Mighty to save."


Mighty to save, mighty to save,
Mighty to save, Lord I trust Thy wondrous love,
Mighty to save.

O why is Thine apparel
With reeking gore all dyed,
Like them that tread the wine-press red?
O why this bloody tide?
"I the wine-press trod alone,
'Neath darkening skies;
Of the people there was none
Mighty to save."


O, bleeding Lamb, my Savior,
How couldst Thou bear this shame?
"With mercy fraught, Mine own arm brought
Salvation in My name:
I the bloody fight have won,
Conquered the grave;
Now the year of joy has come,
Mighty to save."
