220. Oh, Take a Look There

1 As we think of our dear Lord, how He bore our sin and shame,
The load was so heavy on His soul;
When He suffered all the scoffs, and the scorns from those He loved,
He was suff’ring that we could be made whole.

Refrain:
Oh, take a look there, when He suffered for you,
And listen to those kind, gentle words:
As He prayed, “Forgive them, Lord, for they know not what they do,”
He was praying for your and my poor soul.

2 In Gethsemane He bowed, there He prayed for you and me,
The load was so heavy on His soul;
Oh, He cried in agony, and the way was made so free,
He was praying that we could be made whole. [Refrain]

3 They led Him to Calvary, His dear body tired and worn,
The load was so heavy on His soul;
There they nailed Him to the cross, where He bled and died for you,
He was dying that we could be made true. [Refrain]

4 Oh, just listen now, I say, there they laid His form away,
The load is now placed upon our souls;
Will you go in agony, weeping in Gethsemane?
Will you pray there for lost souls every day? [Refrain]

5 The grave could not hold our Lord, on the day He should arise
He came forth a living sacrifice;
And, dear sinner, He will save your lost soul from sin’s cold grave,
And bring you back to life, oh, life again. [Refrain]
