Representative Text

1 Gazing on the Lord, in glory,
While our hearts in worship bow,
There we read the wondrous story
Of the cross, its shame and woe:

2 Ev’ry mark of dark dishonor
Heaped upon Thy thorn-crowned brow,
All the depths of Thy heart’s sorrow
Told in answering glory now!

3 On that cross, alone, forsaken,
Where no pitying eye was found;
Now, to God’s right hand exalted,
With Thy praise the heav’ns resound!

4 Did Thy God e’en then forsake Thee,
Hide His face from Thy deep need?
In Thy face, once marred and smitten,
All His glory now we read.

5 Gazing on it we adore Thee,
Blessed, precious, holy Lord!
Thou, the Lamb, art ever worthy—
This be earth’s and heav’n’s accord.

6 Rise our hearts, and bless the Father—
Ceaseless song e'en here begun,
Endless praise and adoration
To the Father and the Son!
