Bowed down beneath a weight of woe

Representative Text

1 Bowed down beneath a weight of woe,
Where olives in the garden grow,
Thou wast in agony laid low
For me, O Lamb of God, for me!

2 And yonder in the judgment hall,
Whose dreadful scourgings still appall,
In patience Thou didst bear them all
For me, O Lamb of God, for me!

3 While darkness overspread the sky,
To Calv'ry's cross, uplifted high,
Thou camest willingly to die
For me, O Lamb of God, for me!

4 Sing Hallelujah! Wondrous wise,
While rosy dawn illumed the skies,
Triumphantly Thou didst arise
For me, O Lamb of God, for me!

Amen.
