That great example Jesus set

Full Text

1 That great example Jesus set,
As the Apostle saith;
Must ev'ry Christian imitate,
To prove his living faith.

2 The Christian man is call'd there to,
In Jesus steps to tread;
To suffer with his Lord below,
As members with the head.

3 Like Jesus, humble, meek and mild,
Let all his follow'rs be;
To all their fates be reconcil'd,
And bear with injury.

4 He was expos'd to scorn and pain,
Revil'd and mock'd and beat;
Yet he reviled not again,
Nor yet aveng'd the treat.

5 His life with willingness did yield,
And died, our lives to save;
And by his wounds, our wounds are heal'd,
And ransom'd from the grave.

6 Like Sheep that wander from the fold,
We left the ways of God;
But the great Bishop of the soul,
Redeem'd us by his blood.

7 O Christians then, let us partake,
And suffer with our Lord;
And bear the Cross for Jesus sake,
And wait the Great reward.
