2 Sinners, behold, as ye pass by,
The bleeding Prince of Life and Peace; Come see, ye, worms, your Maker die, And say, was ever grief like his! Oh! be to us his blood applied: JESUS, my Lord, is crucified! 3 Is crucified for me and
To bring his people back to God;
Pardon and life flow from his side;
4 Then let us sit beneath his cross,
And gladly catch the healing stream;
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, Golgotha; 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 for sinners spilt, Shows my sin in all its guilt:
Ah ! my soul, he bore thy load,
3 Hark! his dying word “ Forgive,”
4 While I hear this grace reveal'd,
5 Farewell, world, thy gold is dross,
6 He has dearly bought my soul;
107. Crucifixion. 8-7.
Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of GOD, and
"STRICKEN, smitten and afflicted,"
'Tis the long expected prophet, David's son, yet David's Lord; Proofs I see sufficient of it:
'Tis a true and faithful word.
2 [Tell me, ye who hear him groaning,
Many hands were rais'd to wound him,
3 Ye who think of sin but lightly,
See who bears the awful load! "Tis the Word," the Lord's Anointed, Son of man, and Son of God.
4 Here we have a firm foundation :
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.-ISAIAH liii. 7.
AS a lamb led forth to slaughter,
2 JESUS died in love to others;
Greater love hath none than this:
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 Ah, my Lord, thou know'st thy servant,
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.-MAT. xxvi. 39.
JESUS drains the cup of sorrows:
And redeems us by his blood:
2 JESUS is "a Man of Sorrows," Here he claims pre-eminence; See him pierc'd by heav'n's own arrows,
See him 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: Darkness now exerts its power: Darkness reigns this fearful hour. ›
