O Lord, when faith with fixed eyes

Representative Text

1 O Lord, when faith with fixed eyes
Beholds thy wondrous sacrifice,
Love rises to an ardent flame,
And we all other hope disclaim.

2 With cold affections who can see
The thorns, the scourge, the nails, the tree,
The flowing tears, and crimson sweat,
Thy bleeding hands, and head, and feet!

3 Jesus, what millions of our race
Have been the triumphs of thy grace,
And millions more to thee shall fly,
And on thy sacrifice rely.

4 The sorrow, shame and death were thine,
And all the stores of wrath divine!
Ours are the pardon, life and bliss:
What love can be compar'd to this!
