Our sins, ah! wherefore did'st Thou bear?
Jesus, remember Calvary!

3 For us wast Thou not lifted up?
For us a bleeding victim made,
That we, vile sinners, we might hope
Thou hast for all a ransom paid?

4 Oh, might we, with believing eyes,
Thee in Thy bloody vesture see!
And cast us on thy sacrifice:
Jesus, my Lord, remember me!
