C.M.D.


1
BEHOLD the Lamb, whose precious blood
Flowed from His riven side;
The power to make our peace with God,
Nor let one spot abide.
2
The dying thief beheld that Lamb
Expiring by his side,
And proved the value of the Name
Of Jesus crucified.
3
His soul, by virtue of the blood,
To paradise received,
Redemption's earliest trophy stood,
From sin and death retrieved.
4
We, too, the cleansing power have known
Of Christ's atoning blood,
By grace have learnt His Name to own,
By whom we're brought to God.
5
To Him, then let our songs ascend,
Who stooped in grace so low;
To Christ, the Lamb, the sinner's Friend,
Let ceaceless praises flow.

W. Trotter (d. 1865)
