The Saviour's dying love. 2 On fallen men he cast his eye,
2 Had I an angels heav'nly tongue, In depths of mis’ry saw them lie; Or seraphs melody, Pity'd their state, resolv'd to come,

And years shall cease to roll, his flight,
And spread from pole to pole.

wounds, 5 To Jesus, our exalted Head,
And dries each anxious tear.

For Jesus' wondrous love,
