By Thy helpless infant years,
By Thy deep expiring groan,
Rock of ages, cleft for me,
Not the labours of my hands
tears for ever-flow, All for sin could not atoneThou must save, and Thou alone!
Nothing in my hand I bring,
On Jewish altars slain
Or wash away the stain.
Takes all our sins away;
And richer blood than they.
To see the curse remove;
And sing His bleeding love.
O MOST merciful !
O most bountiful!
By the Redeemer's
RIDE on! ride on in majesty!
Ride on! ride on in majesty!
Ride on ! ride on in majesty !
Ride on ! ride on in majesty!
WE sing the praise of Him who died,
cross; The sinner's hope let men deride,
For this we count the world but loss.
the cross we see, In shining letters, God is love ; He bears our sins upon the tree,
He brings us mercy from above.
The cross ! it takes our guilt away;
It holds the fainting spirit up; 1. It cheers with hope the gloomy day,
And sweetens every bitter cup.
It makes the coward spirit brave,
And nerves the feeble arm for fight;
And gilds the bed of death with light.
The balm of life, the cure of woe,
The measure and the pledge of love,
The Angels' theme in heaven above.
SEE the destined day arise,
JESUS, who but Thou had borne,
Every pang and bitter throe, 1... Finishing Thy life of woe?
Who but Thou had dared to drain,
Thence pour’d forth the water flow'd,
Of the finish'd sacrifice.
Holy JESUS, grant us grace
Go to dark Gethsemane,
Ye that feel the tempter's power ; Your Redeemer's conflict see,
Watch with Him one bitter hour :: Turn not from His griefs away, Learn of JESUS CHRIST to pray.
Follow to the judgment-hall,
View the Lord of life arraign'd: O the wormwood and the gall !
O the pangs His soul sustain'd! Shun not suffering, shame, or loss ; Learn of Him to bear the cross,
Calvary's mournful mountain climb,
There, adoring at His feet, Mark that miracle of time, God's
's own sacrifice complete : “ It is finish'd !”-hear the cry; Learn of JESUS CHRIST to die.
Early hasten to the tomb,
Where they laid His breathless clay; All is solitude and gloom;
Who hath taken Him away ? “ Christ is risen !” He meets our eyes ; Saviour, teach us so to rise,
