Representative Text

1 Lamb of God beloved,
Once for sinners slain,
Thankful we remember
What Thou didst sustain;
Nothing Thee incited
But unbounded grace
To bear condemnation
In the sinner’s place.

2 I with sacred sorrow
View Mount Calvary;
But my soul rejoices
O’er Thy death for me;
Since Thou by Thy passion
Didst for me atone,
Toke me as an offering,
Thine I’ll be alone.

3 In Thy wounds, O Jesus,
I have found true peace;
Thou in all distresses
Art a hiding place;
Unto Thee I’ll ever
Look with humble faith
And rejoice and glory
In Thy wounds and death.

4 I, unworthy sinner,
Lie before Thy throne,
Though I scarce am able
To express, I own,
All my wants, dear Savior,
Yet Thou know’st them well;
Now in me the counsel
Of Thy love fulfill.
