POETRY « Christ our passover is sacrificed for us."
“God forbid that I should glory save in the Cross of I Cor. y. 7.
our Lord Jesus Christ."-Gal. vi. 14. Why did the paschal beast Of old for Israel bleed ?
Well may we count the world but loss, To be their safeguard and their feast,
And gladly join His praise to sing, To sprinkle and to feed.
Who for our sins endured the Cross,
And dying, took from death its sting! Dwell not, my searching soul, On ritual shadows now !
Pleading that Cross, the soul may dare Christ is the Lamb, all pure and whole;
Appeal to covenanted love; The ransomed firstborn thou !
For He who bore our burthen there,
Now lives to intercede above.
Strong in that Cross, the soul may dare
Sin's dark device and Satan's might; The dread Avenger comes not in To smite, but passeth o'er.
Can see unmoved the opening grave,
And call earth's worst affliction light. He looks, and calls from high, "Art thou to die or live?”
Wise in that Cross, the soul may trace He hears the posts and lintels cry,
T'h' unfolded plan of power and love; Forgive, forgive, forgive !"
And see in our Emanuel's face
The glory angels see above.
Of ills that I have done:
LORD JESUS! we believing Sin, Satan, Death press near,
In Thee have peace with God, To harass and appal:
Eternal life receiving, Let but my bleeding Lord appear,
The purchase of thy blood. Backward they go, and fall.
Our curse and condemnation
Thou barest in our stead, Before, behind, around,
Secure is our salvation,
In Thee our risen Head.
The Holy Ghost revealing
Thy work, has made us blest; 1 meet them face to face,
Thy stripes have given us healing; Through Jesus' conquest blest;
Upon thy love we rest. March, in the triumph of His grace,
In Thee the Father sees us, Right onward to my rest.
Accepted and complete;
Thy blood from sin which frees us
For glory makes us meet.
We know that nought can sever
Our souls, O Lord, from Thee,
And thus united ever His be the victor's name
To all thy saints are we. Who fought the fight alone!
We know Thy word declaring Triumphant saints no honour claim
The Father's wondrous love, Their conquest was His own.
In which we all are sharing
With Thee our Head above.
May we this love be showing
To all thy members here, By being trodden down!
For Thy sake freely flowing,
Until thou shalt appear ; He hell in hell laid low,
Till all the Church in union Made sin, he sin o'erthrew;
Around the Father's throne Bowed to the grave, and killed it so,
Shall stand in blest communion, And Death by dying slew.
For ever joined in one.
Bless, bless the Conqueror slain
Slain by divine decree !
For thee, His saint-for thee!
