1 Great high priest we view the stooping
With our names upon thy breast;
In the garden groaning, drooping,
To the ground, with sorrow pressed.
2 Weeping angels stood confounded,
To behold their maker thus:
And can we remain unwounded,
When we know 'twas all for us?
3 On the cross thy body broken,
Cancels every penal tie,
Tempted souls produce the token,
All demands to satisfy.
4 All is finished, do not doubt it,
But believe your dying Lord,
Never reason more about it,
Only take him at his word.
5 Lord we fain would trust thee solely,
'Twas for us thy blood was spilt;
Praised bridegroom, take us wholly,
Take and make us what thou wilt.
6 Thou hast borne the bitter sentence
Past on man's devoted race;
True belief and true repentance,
Are thy gifts, thou God of grace.
