Hymn Selection


GAZING on Thee, Lord, in glory,
While our hearts in worship bow,
There we read the wondrous story
Of the cross, its shame and woe.
Every mark of dark dishonour
Heaped upon the thorn-crowned brow,
All the depths of Thy heart's sorrow
Told in answ'ring glory now.
On that cross alone, forsaken,
Where no pitying eye was found;
Now to God's right hand exalted,
With Thy priase the heav'ns resound.
Did Thy God e'en then forsake Thee,
Hide His face from Thy deep need!
In Thy face, once marred and smitted,
All His glory now we read.
Gazing on it we adore Thee,
Blessèd, precious, holy Lord!
Thou, the Lamb, art ever worthy!
This be earth's and heav'n's accord.
