77?<? Suffering and Crucifixion of Christ. L. M
Afa/7. xxvii. 26-53.
I Ye that pass by, behold the Man !
The man of griefs condemned for you,
The Lamb of God, for sinners slain,
Weeping to Calvary pursue !
2 See! how his back the scourges tear,
While to the bloody pillar bound!
The ploughers made long furrows there,
Till all his body is one wound.
3 Nor can he thus their hate assuage;
His innocence to death pursued,
Must fully glut their utmost rage :
Hark! how they clamor for his blood !
4 His sacred limbs they stretch, they tear,
With nails they fasten to the wood!
His sacred limbs, exposed and bare,
Or only cover'd with his blood!
5 See, there! his temples crown'd with thorns,
His bleeding hands extended wide !
His streaming feet transfixt and torn !
The fountain gushing from his side!
6 Where is the King of Glory now ?
The everlasting Son of God !
The Immortal hangs his languid brow:
The Almighty faints beneath his load!
96 Dying, Rising, Reigning. L. M.
[Orwell, page 50.]
I He dies! the Friend of sinners dies!
Lo ! Salem's daughters weep around ;
A solemn darkness veils the skies ;
A sudden trembling shakes the ground :
2 Come, saints, and drop a tear or two
For him who groaned beneath your load :
He shed a thousand drops for you,
A thousand drops of richer blood.
3 Here's love and grief beyond degree :
The Lord of glory dies for man!
But lo! what sudden joys we see !
Jesus, the dead, revives again !
4 The rising God forsakes the tomb ;
Up to his Father's courts he flies ;
Cherubic legions guard him home,
And shout him welcome to the skies!
5 Break off your tears, ye saints, and tell
How high your great Deliv'rer reigns :
Sing how he spoiled the hosts of hell,
And led the monster death in chains!
6 Say, " Live for ever, wondrous King!
Born to redeem, and strong to save! "
Then ask the monster, " Where's thy sting?"
And, "Where's thy vict'ry, boasting grave."
