1 Would Jesus have the sinner die!
Why hangs he then on yonder tree?
What means that strange, expiring cry?
Sinners, he prays for you and me--
Forgive them, Father, oh, forgive!
They know not that by me they live.
2 Thou loving, all-atoning Lamb,
Thee, by thy painful agony,
Thy bloody sweat, thy grief and shame,
Thy cross and passion on the tree,
Thy precious death and life--I pray,
Take all, take all my sins away.
3 Oh, let me kiss thy bleeding feet,
And bathe and wash them with my tears,
The story of thy love repeat
In every drooping sinner's ears,
That all may hear the quick'ning sound,
Since I, e'en I have mercy found.
4 Oh, let thy love my heart constrain,
Thy love for every sinner free,
That every fallen soul of man
May taste the grace that found out me;
That all mankind with thee may prove
Thy sovereign, everlasting love.
