8.6.8.8.6.8.8.


1
"LOOK unto Me!" the Savior cries;
Behold, upon the tree
The Holy One, a Victim, dies -
The Lamb of God, a Sacrifice;
A mighty Saviour He!
God's love in fulness there made known
When Jesus did for sins atone.
2
O solemn hour! O hour alone,
In solitary might,
When God the Father's only Son,
As man for sinners to atone,
Expires - amazing sight!
The Lord of glory crucifies -
The Lord of life Himself has died!
3
Worthy of death, O God, we were,
That vengeance was our due.
In grace Thy spotless Lamb did bear,
Himself our sins while hanging there;
Justice our Surety slew.
With Him, our Surety, we have died,
When He for us was crucified.
4
Quickened with Him in life divine,
Raised with Him from the dead:
His own (and all His own are Thine)
Shall with Him in His glories shine,
Our blessèd living Head!
We who were worthy but to die,
Are by His precious blood made nigh.
