He endured for us ;

All the tears he shed,
Bearing sin's pond'rous load:
Thanks for thy agony,

When he in the garden,
Thy bloody sweat for me,

Bearing our sin's burden,

In soul's anguish pray'd :
Thy suff'ring willingly;
All hail, 'midst pain and scorn,

Yea, each part of toil and smart

In my soul excites a motion
Spit upon, crown'd with thorn,

To intense devotion.
And by the scourges torn!
All hail, in purple clad.

Languid eyes, just closing, Ah! behold the Man !

Side, pierc'd with a spear; Sinners, sinners,

Limbs, to pain inured, Ah! behold the Man !

Feet, for me thro' bored,

Hands, the nails did tear ; 2 Bearing the cross's weight, Thou mountest Calv'ry's height,

Head, by right divinely bright,

Crown'd with pointed thorns& bruised, I weeping follow thee, For all is done for me,

Spit on and abused; For me, thine enemy!

4 Breast, which heaves with sorrows; All hail! as in

my
stead,

Back, plough'd o'er with furrows,
Thou, a sin-off'ring made,

From the scourges sore; In torments bow'st thy head; Arms, in pain extended, Thanks for thy pierced side!

Shoulders, raw and wounded, Sinners, sinners,

Hair distain'd with gore; All who

Sacred Lips, in death how pale ! Hearken, hearken,

Thou to me appearest; : The vail is rent' in twain,

Then did thine arm prevail;

Ah! behold me with compassion,
O glorious sacrifice !

Grant me consolation.

4 How great and wondrous was the CHRIST Jesus was to death abas'd

Life was by death assailed! (strife,

But Jesus Christ, the Prince of life,
Because of our transgression;

O'er sin and death prevailed;
But now for us, by being rais'd,

He triumph'd over them in death,
Hath gain'd life and salvation.
'Tis this should prompt us to rejoice,

And we are conqu’rors too by faith

In Christ our risen Saviour.
To praise the Lord with heart and voice,
In singing Hallelujah !

5 He is the blessed Paschal Lamb, 2 By none of all the human race By God himself appointed:

Could death and hell be foiled ; The prophets all aloud proclaim
Sin render'd all men weak and base, That he is the Anointed.
All ruin'd were and spoiled; If on our hearts his blood

appear,
Death having enter'd by the fall, We're freed from death's enslaving fear,
Bore
sway

and was entaild on all; Subdu'd is that destroyer.
All sinners are by nature.
3 But Jesus Christ, the Son of God, 6 This is the day the Lord hath made
In love and great compassion,

To lively hopes to raise us :
To free us from sin's galling load, Let heav’n rejoice, let earth be glad,
Appear'd in human fashion:

And join to sing his praises:
He hath destroy'a sin's pow'r & claim, For Christ, our everlasting light,
And left death nothing but the name; Dispels the clouds of sin's dark night,
Its sting can't hurt believers,

And all the pow'rs of darkness.
