Hymn Selection


LORD, we treasure with affection
All Thy path of sorrow here,
And those closing scenes of anguish
To our hearts Thyself endear.
Deep Thy sorrow then, Lord Jesus,
Deeper far than thought can reach;
Grief intense and suff'rings holy,
Far beyond all tongues to teach.
None could follow there, blest Saviour,
When Thou didst for sins atone;
For those suff'rings, deep, unfathomed,
Were, Lord Jesus, Thine alone!
Thou didst measure then sin's distance,
Darkness, wrath and curse were Thine!
Man betrayed, by God forsaken;
Thus we learn Thy love divine!
