1 For our transgressions you were wounded;
our sins, O Lord, on you were laid;
your suff'rings, O what love unbounded
for guilty ones the debt have paid!
With humble thanks we now adore you;
your cross our glory shall remain;
yet oft ashamed we weep before you,
that we by sin the Lord have slain.
2 O may your love be ever dwelling
within my heart alone enthroned,
all other love but yours expelling,
that love which for my sins atoned;
now Jesus, only, be my treasure,
my joy, my crown while life shall last;
none else on earth shall yield me pleasure,
none else in heav'n, when earth is past.
