O let me look to Golgatha

O let me look to Golgatha

Published in 2 hymnals

Full Text

1 O Let me look to Golgatha,
And my dear Saviour see:
Who on the Cross doth weep and pray
Who bleeds and dies for me.

2 O may that blood my Jesus spilt,
When he for me was slain;
Cause me to know and feel my guilt!
My guilt of deepest stain.

3 He died for me, that I should live,
And in his latest breath:
He pray'd the father to forgive,
And save my soul from death.

4 This precious truth to me reveal'd,
My doubts shall soon remove--
And having thus my pardon seal'd,
My soul is mov'd with love.

5 The law with all its pow'r and force
Can not effectual be;
To free my soul from sin and curse,
Or work a change in me.

6 But when my heart can feel it true,
What Christ for me hath done;
My heart must feel and soften too,
For follies, weep and mourn.

7 Come sinners view the Lamb of God!
Come venture near and try;
The merits of the Saviour's blood
Will bring Salvation nigh.
