Or spends the night in fervent pray's 6 In thy righteousness array'd
And offers tears and cries.

Let us triumph and be glad;

Let us walk with thee in white, 6 Again, as Teacher of Mankind

Let us see thy face in light.
I see my humble Lord :
How cheerfully was he inclin'd
To preach the saving word!

IMMANUEL's meritorious tears 7 To comfort men was his delight,

Assuage our ev'ry pain, To help them in distress;

His bitter suff'rings, cries and pray'rs, He ready was, by day and night,

Our fav'rite theme remain. To pardon, heal and bless.

2 When Jesus' suff'ring life we trace,
8 Oft he was hungry, spent and sad, In ev'ry scene we find,
In his
own world a guest,

That he a man of sorrows was,
And of his own no place he had, Though of unspotted mind.
His weary
head to rest.

3 All they who weeping now go forth, 9 Ah, might my heart a mirror be, And bear the precious seed, Reflecting Jesus' grace,

May in our Saviour's walk on earth That all, who'my behaviour see,

Pattern and comfort read. May some resemblance trace. 4 Among the evils of the fall 10 Grant me that meek and lowly mind, This the most dreadful is of all,

Which soul and body grieve,
Thou hast on earth display'd,

That sin to us doth cleave.
Which in thy holy life I find,
My Pattern, Lord and Head. 5 Whene'er the Holy Ghost displays

To our benighted hearts,

That we are wretched, vile and base,

And light to us imparts,
SEE, my soul; God ever blest 6 How do we blush with conscious

While tears of anguish flow ! He, to ransom sinners,

And did we not the suff’ring Lamb, 2 He fulfilld all righteousness,

The Friend of sinners know; Standing in the sinner's place;

7 A contrite heart would never cease From the manger to the cross,

To weep most bitter tears; All he did, he did for us:

But faith in Jesus' saving grace

The mourning sinner cheers. 3 All our woes he did retrieve, He expir'd that we might live;

8 Whenwe have that great bliss attain'd

To find, that in all need, By his stripes our wounds are heald,

Christ is our Counsellor and Friend, By his blood our pardon's seald.

Then are we help'd indeed, 4 Lord, conform us to thy death, 9 O'tis the greatest happiness, Raise us to new life by faith,

Purify our inward parts;

That Jesus wept for us,
