Behold the Savior of Mankind


Behold the Savior of mankind
Nailed to the shameful tree!
How vast the love that Him inclined
To bleed and die for thee!

Though far unequal our low praise
To Thy vast sufferings prove,
O Lamb of God, thus all our days,
Thus will we grieve and love.

Hark, how He groans, while nature shakes,
And earthís strong pillars bend;
The templeís veil in sunder breaks,
The solid marbles rend.

ďíTis done!Ē The precious ransomís paid,
ďReceive My soul,Ē He cries!
See where He bows His sacred head!
He bows His head, and dies!

But soon Heíll break deathís envious chain,
And in full glory shine:
O Lamb of God! was ever pain,
Was ever love, like Thine?

Thy loss our ruin did repair;
Death by death is slain;
Thou wilt at length exalt us where
Thou dost in glory reign.
