1 Lord, Thou in all things like wast made
To us, yet free from sin,
Then how unlike to us, O Lord,
Replies the voice within.
2 Our faith is weak; O Light of Light,
Clear Thou our clouded view;
That Son of Man, and Son of God,
We give Thee honor due.
3 O Son of Man, Thyself hast proved
Our trials and our tears;
Life's thankless toil and scant repose,
Death's agonies and fears.
4 O Son of God, in glory raised,
Thou sittest on Thy throne:
Thence, by Thy pleadings and Thy grace,
Still succoring Thine own.
5 Brother and Saviour, Friend and Judge!
To Thee, O Christ, be given
To bind upon Thy crown the names
Most blest in earth and heaven.
Lord, Thou in all things like wert [wast] made. J. Anstice. [Passiontide.] First published in his (posthumous) Hymns, 1836, No. 21, in 6 stanzas of 4 lines, and again in the Child's Christian Year, 1841. From the Child's Christian Year it passed as, "In all things like Thy brethren, Thou," into the Leeds Hymn Book, 1853, No. 295. This form of the hymn has become popular, and especially with the Nonconformists. It is sometimes attributed to J. Keble.
