L.M.


1
"BEHOLD the Man!" O blessèd Lord,
These words evoke an answering chord;
We see Thee on the path below,
That led the way to Calv'ry's woe.
2
A King, despite a crown of thorn!
Man's violent hatred meekly borne;
Despised, O Lord, and left alone,
Thou, the rejected Corner-stone!
3
Betrayed, denied, forsaken there,
The guilt of many Thou didst bear;
Didst for trangressors intercede,
Blest answer to the sinner's need!
4
O holy Saviour, Thou didst die,
And for us in the grave didst lie!
But now in triumph Thou art gone
To sit upon the Father's throne.
5
O Lord, eternally to praise
Our voices now we gladly raise;
In one loud anthem we combine
To celebrate such love as Thine!

E. Carrèn, fr. French
