7.6.7.6.7.6.7.6.


1
LORD Jesus, we remember
The travail of Thy soul,
When, through Thy love's deep pity,
The waves did o'er Thee roll.
Baptised in death's dark waters,
For us Thy blood was shed;
For us Thou, Lord of glory,
Wast numbered with dead.
2
O Lord, Thou now art risen,
Thy travail all is o'er;
For sin Thou once hast suffered,
Thou liv'st to die no more.
Sin, death, and hell are vanquished
By Thee, the church's Head;
And lo! we share Thy triumphs,
Thou Firstborn from the dead.
3
Unto Thy death baptisèd,
We own with Thee we died;
With Thee, our life, we're risen,
And shall be glorified.
From sin, the world, and Satan,
We're ransomed by Thy blood;
And here would walk as strangers,
Alive with Thee to God.
