We love him, because he first loved us.-1 JOHN iv. 19.
WHEN, on the cross my Lord I see, Bleeding to death for wretched me; Satan and sin no more can move, My soul is then constrained to love. 2 His thorns and nails pierce through my In every groan I bear a part; [heart, I view his wounds with streaming eyes: But see-he bows his head, and dies!

Behold his side, and venture near,
4 Here I forget my cares and pains;
5.0 that I thus could always feeld ov Lord, more and more thy love reveal! Then my glad tongue shall loud proclaim
The grace and glory of thy name, 6 Thy name dispels my guilt and fear, Revives my heart and charms my ear; Affords a balm for every wound, And Satan trembles at the sound.

Around the rising victor crowd, waf And hail him to his throne.

EXTENDED on the accursed tree, Bath'd in his own most precious blood, See there, the King of Glory see! Sinks and expires the SON OF GOD! 2 Who, who,my SAVIOUR, this hath done? Who could thy sacred body wound? No guilt thy spotless soul had known, No guile had in thy lips been found. 3 Ah, Lord!-'Tis I have done the deed! "Tis I thy sacred flesh have torn ; My sins have caused thee to bleed; Pointed the nail, and fix'd the thorn!
4 For me the burthen to sustain
Too great, on thee, my Lord, was laid: To heal me, thou hast borne my pain; To bless me, thou a curse wast made.
5 My SAVIOUR! how shall I proclaim,

I SEE his hands and feet extended,
2 Lord for thy deep humiliation
I'll thank and laud thee all my days; Long as I live, without cessation
May ev'ry breath declare thy praise! O may that hand, whereon engraven Each pardon'd sinner's name doth Support me, till I in thy haven [stand, Of endless bliss shall safely land;
