Bid vice and misery begone,
Except the Son of God-

And make the nations all thy own. In agonizing pangs of soul, [bowl, 1 8 The travail of thy soul' demand, Drinks deep of wormwood's bitterest The recompense of all thy woe; And sweats great drops of blood.

From every tribe, and tongue, and land,

Thy praise let all the people know! 2 See his disciples slumbering round, Nor pitying friend on earth is found !

9 Should e'er my love or zeal grow cold, He treads the press alone;

My caution fail, my faith abate, In vain to heaven he turns his eyes,

Let me thy cross, O Christ, behold; The curse awaits him from the skies

That shall new life and love create! His death it must atone.

10 Thy wondrous cross shall be my boast

While in this sinning world I stay; 30 Father, hear! this cup remove;

And when my voice in death is lost, Save thou the darling of thy love

I'll sing it through eternal day!
(The prostrate victim cries)
From overwhelming fear and dread!
Though he must mingle with the dead-

Jesus crucified. 4 His earnest prayers, his deepening groans,

W HEN with a melting heart I stood Were heard before angelic thrones ;

W Near to a fountain fill'd with blood, Amazement wrapt the sky:

It flow'd a crimson tide; (guess, Go, strengthen Christ!' the Father said:

That sight what stranger's heart can The astonish'd seraph bow'd his head,

Or mind conceive, or tongue express ?And left the realms on high.

"'Twas Jesus crucified. 5 Macie strong in strength, renew'd from 2 But plunged beneath the cleansing flood, Jesus receives the cup as given, (heaven, My heart exclaim'd, Behold, how good And, perfectly resign'd,

From death, and everlasting pains, Nor leaves a dreg behind.

But Jesus crucified!

3 Truly blessec is this station,

Oh that our souls might burst the shade, Low before his cross to lie;

And, quicken'd by thy death, arise ! While I see divine compassion

7 The rocks could feel thy powerful death, Floating in his languid eye.

And tremble, and asunder part; 4 Here it is I find my heaven,

Oh, rend, with thy expiring breath, While upon the cross I gaze;

The harder marble of our heart !
Love I much? I've more forgiven:
I'm a miracle of grace.

O why for man, dear Saviour, why?
I WHEN on Sinai's top I see
God descend in majesty,

4 And didst thou bleed ?-for sinners bleed? To proclaim his holy law,

And could the sun behold the deed?

No! he withdrew his sickening ray, All my spirit sinks with awe.

And darkness veil'd the mourning day. 2 When, in ecstasy sublime,

5 Can I survey this scene of woe, Tabor's glorious steep I climb, At the too-transporting light,

Where mingling grief and wonder flow Darkness rushes o'er my sight.

And yet my heart unmoved remain,

Insensible to love or pain ? 3 When on Calvary I rest,

6 Come, dearest Lord, thy grace impart God, in flesh made manifest, Shines in my Redeemer's face,

To warm this cold-this stupid heart Full of beauty, truth, and grace.

Till all its powers and passions move

In melting grief and ardent love. 4 Here I would for ever stay, Weep and gaze my soul away;

And weltering in his blood. I VE that pass by, behold the Man,

12 Behold, a purple torrent run 1 The Man of grief, condemn'd for you!

Down from his hands and head, The Lamb of God, for sinners slain !

The crimson tide puts out the sun ; Weeping, to Calvary pursue.

His groans awake the dead. 2 His sacred limbs they stretch, they tear,

13 The trembling earth, the darken'd sky, With nails they fasten to the wood

Proclaim the truth aloud ; His sacred limbs-exposed and bare,

And with th' amazed centurion, cry, Or only cover'd with his blood.

This is the Son of God!' 8 See there! his temples crown'd with 14 So great, so vast a sacrifice thorns,

May well my hope revive : His bleeding hands extended wide,

If God's own Son thus bleeds and dies, His streaming feet transfix'd and torn,

The sinner sure may live.
The fountain gushing from his side! 15 O that these cords of love divine
Thou dear, thou suffering Son of God,

Might draw me, Lord, to thee!
How doth thy heart to sinners move!

Thou hast my heart, it shall be thineSprinkle on us thy precious blood,

Thint it shall ever be ! And melt us with thy dying love!

Love of Christ constraining. Convulsed when her Creator died;

CHRIST, the Lord, is risen to-day,

Sons of men and angels say ! 3 Smile on our souls, and bid us sing,

Raise your joys and triumphs high! In concert with the choir above,

Sing, ye heavens,-and, earth, reply. The glories of our Saviour King, The condescensions of his love.

2 Love's redeeming work is done,

Fought the fight, the battle won : 4 Amazing love! that stoop'd so low,

Lo! the sun's eclipse is o'er:
To view with pity's melting eye

Lo! he sets in blood no more.
Vile men, deserving endless woe:
Amazing love!-did Jesus die ?

3 Vain the stone, the watch, the seal,

Christ has burst the gates of hell! 5 He died, to raise to life and joy

Death in vain forbids his rise,
The vile, the guilty, the undone;

Christ hath open'd paradise !
Oh, let his praise each hour employ,
Till hours no more their circles run!

Where, o death, is now thy sting?' 6 He died !-ye seraphs tune your songs !

Once he died our souls to save; Resound, resound, the Saviour's name,

Where's thy victory, boasting grave?' For nought below immortal tongues Can ever reach the wondrous theme.
