8.7.8.7.


1
LORD, we treasure with affection
All Thy path of sorrow here,
And those closing scenes of anguish
To our hearts Thyself endear.
2
Deep Thy sorrow then, Lord Jesus,
Deeper far than thought can reach;
Grief intense and suff'rings holy,
Far beyond all tongues to teach.
3
None could follow there, blest Saviour,
When Thou didst for sins atone;
For those suff'rings, deep, unfathomed,
Were, Lord Jesus, Thine alone!
4
Thou didst measure then sin's distance,
Darkness, wrath and curse were Thine!
Man betrayed, by God forsaken;
Thus we learn Thy love divine!
