Hail Sovereign Love
By Jehoida Brewer
Hail sovereign love that first began,
The scheme to rescue fallen man.
Hail matchless, free, eternal grace,
That gave my soul a hiding place.
Against the God who rules the sky,
I fought with hand uplifted high;
Despised the mention of His grace,
Too proud to seek a hiding place.
Enwrapped in thick Egyptian night,
And fond of darkness more than light;
Madly I ran the sinful race,
Secure without a hiding place.
But thus the eternal counsel ran,
“Almighty love, arrest that man!”
I felt the arrows of disgrace,
And found I had no hiding place.
Indignant Justice stood in view,
To Sinai’s fiery mount I flew.
But Justice cried with frowning face,
This mountain is no hiding place.
Ere long an angel’s voice I heard,
And Mercy’s angel face appeared.
She led me on with placid pace,
To Jesus as my hiding place.
Should storms of sevenfold thunders roll,
And shake the globe from pole to pole.
No flaming bolt shall daunt my face,
For Jesus is my hiding place,
On Him eternal judgment fell,
That must have sunk a world to Hell,
He bore it for the chosen race,
And thus became their hiding place.
A few more rolling suns at most,
Shall land my soul on Canaan’s coast.
Where I shall sing the songs of grace,
And gaze upon my hiding place!
