Representative Text

1 Behold the sin-atoning Lamb,
With wonder, gratitude, and love:
To take away our guilt and shame,
See him descending from above.

2 Our sins and griefs on him were laid:
He meekly bore the mighty load;
Our ransom price he fully paid,
In groans and tears, in sweat and blood.

3 To save a guilty world he dies:
Sinners, behold the bleeding Lamb!
To him lift up your longing eyes,
And hope for mercy in his name.

4 Pardon and peace through him abound;
He can the richest blessings give;
Salvation in his name is found--
He bids the dying sinner live.

5 Jesus, my Lord, I look to thee;
Where else can helpless sinners go?
Thy boundless love shall set me free
From all my wretchedness and woe.
