2 Sinners, behold, as ye pass by,
Thebleeding Prince of Life and Peace;
And say, was ever grief like his !
Jesus, my Lord, is crucified! 3 Is crucified for me and you,
To bring his people back to God;. Believe, believe the record true,
His church is purchas'd with his
Pardon and life flow from his side;
Jesus, my Lord, is crucified! 4 Then let ussit beneath his cross,
And gladly catch the healing stream;
And give up all our hearts to him;
106. Crucifixion, 7s. And he, bearing his cross, went forth into a place, called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew, Gol. gotha; where they crucified him.-John xix. 17, 18. LET me dwell on Golgotha, Weep and love my
life away! While I see him on the tree,
Weep, and bleed, and die for me! 2 Jesu's blood för sinners spült,'
Show's my sin in all its guilt:
Ah ! my soul, he bore thy load,
Thou hast slain the Lamb of God, 3 Hark! bis dying word“ Forgive,"
Freely Jesu's grace receive :
He thy ransom fully paid.
And obtain a pardon seal'd,
Waken'd by the force of love.
Now I see the bleeding cross ;
From the law, and sin, and thee! 6 He has dearly bought my soul;
Lord, accept and claim the whole !
107. Crucifixion. 8–7.
Sarely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrowS:
yet we did estęein him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. - ISAIAU liii. 4.
“ STRICKEN, smitten and afficted,"
See him dying on the tree !
Yes my soul, 'tis he ! 'tis he!
Foes insulting his distress:
David's son, yet David's Lord;
'Tis a true and faithful word.
Was there ever grief like his ?
None would interpose to save;
Was the stroke God's justice gave.] 3 Ye who think of sin but lightly,
Nor suppose the evil great ;
Here its guilt may estimate.
See who bears the awful load !
Son of man, and Son of God,
4 Here we have a: firmi foundation :
Here's the refuge of the lost :
His the name of which we boast:
Sacrifice to cancel guilt!
Who on him their hope have built.
108. Crucifixion, 87_7.
He was oppressed, and he was afflicted; yet he opened
not his mouth; he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. ISAIAA liii. 7.
AS a lamb led forth to slaughter,
Jesus on his way proceeds:
While the patient victim bleeds.
Jesus, chosen of the Lord,
Greater love hath none than this :
Feeble is compared to bis.
Who, its depth, its height, its strength? 3 [Come, my soul, behold and wonder,
Here's a sight to cause surprise: Well the rocks might cleave asunder;
Well might darkness veil the skies. 'Twas the voice of nature then,
Nature's voice reproving men.] 4 Nature's voice, again reproving;
Would be heard should I not speak;
Him who came the lost to seek.
5 Ab, my Lord, thou know'st thy servant,
Weak, unfaithful, apt to slide;
Let me at thy feet abide.
109. Crucifixion. 8—7—7.
O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me:
nevertheless, not as I will, but as thou wilt.Mar. xxvi. 39.
JESUS drains the cup of sorrows:
See, he lies beneath our load :
And redeems us by his blood :
Was then ever grief like his ? 2 Jesus is “a Man of Sorrows,
Here he claims pre-eminence; See him pierc'd by beav'n's own arrows, ; See bim die for our offence, “We like sheep, have gone astray:"
Jesus takes our sins away., .3 Jesus suffers—wond'rous victim !
'Tis the Son of God that dies: Heav'n and earth, and hell, afflict him,
Justice claims the Sacrifice:
