Representative Text

1 O wonder amazing!
At earth’s midnight hour
The ages are gazing
In awe at its power;
The great secret telling,
How anguish is stilled,
The evil dispelling:
The Word is fulfilled.

2 O hearts that have carried
Your sorrows untold,
The Helper that tarried
Come here and behold!
What prophets have spoken
The trial ensures,
By tortures unbroken
'Tis love that endures.

3 O love, ceasing never,
From thee what can part?
What height or depth sever
From thy bleeding heart?
Now opens the portal,
O blest Jesu mine!
Of mansions immortal,
Of mercy divine.
