Representative Text

1 In tender compassion the Son of God
Came from the throne above;
Fulfilling the promises in His word,
A seal of the Father’s love.

He carried my sins to the cross for me,
The hallowed cross of Calvary;
In sorrow and shame and humility
He sealed my pardon there.

2 All we, tho’ like sheep, having gone astray,
Wandering far from God;
Where sought by the Shepherd from day to day,
As He o’er the mountains trod. [Refrain]

3 Despised and rejected of men was He,
Yet loved them as His own;
He carried their sorrow and bore their grief,
And died for their sins to atone. [Refrain]

4 His work of atonement is now complete,
Once in the holy place
He sprinkled His blood on the mercy seat,
Thus sealing His work of grace. [Refrain]
