Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Behold the bleeding lamb of God, Our spotless sacrifice

Behold the bleeding lamb of God, Our spotless sacrifice

Full Text

1 Behold the bleeding Lamb of God,
The spotless sacrifice!
By hands of bar'brous sinners seiz'd,
Nail'd to the cross he dies.

2 Blest Jesus, whence this streaming blood?
And whence this foul disgrace?
Whence all these pointed thorns, that rend
Thy amiable face!

3 "I sanctify myself, (he cries)
"That thou mays't holy be.
"Come, trace my life; come, view my death,
"And learn to copy me."

4 Dear Lord, we pant for holiness,
And ev'ry sin we mourn:
To the bright path of thy commands
Our wand'ring footsteps turn.

5 Not more sincerely would we wish
To climb the heav'nly hill,
Than here with all our utmost pow'r
Thy model to fulfil.
