I beheld Satan as lightning fall from Heaven. Luke 10:18
Words: Isaac Watts, Hymns and Spiritual Songs 1707–09, Book 2, number 97.
Distinguishing love; or, Angels punished and man saved.
Music: Mainzer Joseph Mainzer, 1841 (🔊 pdf nwc).
From Heav’n the sinning angels fell,
And wrath and darkness chained them down;
But man, vile man, forsook his bliss,
And mercy lifts him to a crown.
Amazing work of sovereign grace
That could distinguish rebels so!
Our guilty treasons called aloud
For everlasting fetters, too.
To Thee, to Thee, Almighty Love,
Our souls, ourselves, our all we pay:
Millions of tongues shall sound Thy praise
On the bright hills of heav’nly day.
