O Christ ! Thy triumphs now begin
O'er captive death and conquer'd sin.
Ride on! ride on in majesty!
The winged squadrons of the sky
Look down with sad and wondering eyes
To see the approaching sacrifice !
Ride on! ride on in majesty !
Thy last and fiercest strife is nigh ;
The Father, on His sapphire throne,
Expects His own anointed Son.
Ride on ! ride on in majesty!
In lowly pomp ride on to die !
Bow Thy meek head to mortal pain,
Then take, O God, Thy power and reign!

The balm of life, the cure of woe,

The measure and the pledge of love,
The sinner's refuge here below,

The Angels' theme in heaven above.

SEE the destined day arise,

See a willing sacrifice,
JESUS, to redeem our loss,
Hangs upon the shameful cross.
JESUS, who but Thou had borne,
Lifted on that tree of scorn,
Every pang and bitter throe,
Finishing Thy life of woe ?
Who but Thou had dared to drain,
Steep'd in gall, the cup of pain;
And with tender body bear
Thorns, and nails, and piercing spear?
Thence pour'd forth the water flow'd,
Mingled from Thy side with blood;
Sign to all attesting eyes
Of the finish'd sacrifice.

Holy JESUS, grant us grace
In that sacrifice to place
All our trust for life renew'd,
Pardon'd sin, and promised good.
