OHT Incipit:  

Far beyond all comprehension
Is Jehovah's covenant love;
Who can fathom its dimension
Or its unknown limits prove?

Ere the earth upon its basis
By creating power was built,
His designs were wise and gracious
For removing human guilt.

He displayed His grand intention
On the mount at Calvary,
When He died for our redemption,
Lifted high upon the tree.

O, how sweet to view the flowing
Of His soul-redeeming blood!
With divine assurance knowing
That it made my peace with God.

Freely Thou wilt bring to heaven
All Thy chosen, ransomed race,
Who to Thee, their Head, were given
In the covenant of grace.
