Before Thy Cross we take our place,
With all our load of guilt,
And plead forgiveness of Thy grace,
Because Thy blood was spilt.
For Thou, to free us from our foes,
Didst bear that cruel Cross,
And by its agony and woes
Bring gain for all our loss.
Therefore we raise with one accord
Our songs right thankfully;
For joy and peace, O Christ our Lord,
We owe in full to Thee.
