8.7.8.7.


1
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.
2
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.
3
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.
4
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.
5
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.
