Ascend the Heights of Love Divine!

The way, the truth and the life!
The way, the truth and the life!

Ascend the heights of love divine,
As God with satisfaction looks;
Delights in Jesus’ victory won,
Our record taken from His books.

Ascend the towering peaks of love,
God’s curse on sin descends on Him;
The Father watches from above,
Our guilt and shame laid all on him.

Ascend the utmost pitch of love,
Enter this stage of tragedy;
The Son of God His blood to save,
To bear sin’s awful penalty.

Ascend the highest stage of love,
Be still and know the painful price;
Step up and see our Father give,
His only Son to take our place.

Ascend the heights of love divine,
As God with satisfaction looks;
Delights in Jesus’ victory won,
Our record taken from His books.
