506. As When the Hebrew Prophet Raised

1 As when the Hebrew prophet raised
the brazen serpent high,
the wounded looked and straight were cured,
the people ceased to die;

2 So from the Savior on the cross
a healing virtue flows;
who looks to him with lively faith
is saved from endless woes.

3 For God gave up his Son to death,
so gen'rous was his love,
that all the faithful might enjoy
eternal life above.

4 Not to condemn the sons of men
the Son of God appeared;
no weapons in his hand are seen,
nor voice of terror heard:

5 He came to raise our fallen state,
and our lost hopes restore;
faith leads us to the mercy seat,
and bids us fear no more.
