“And they shall mourn for him.” Zech. 12. 10

J. Hart         7.6.

1
Suffering Saviour, Lamb of God,
 How hast thou been usèd?
 With the Almighty’s wrathful rod
 Soul and body bruisèd!

2
We, for whom thou once wast slain,
 We, whose sins did pierce thee,
 Now commemorate thy pain,
 And implore thy mercy.

3
We would with thee sympathise
 In thy bitter passion;
 With soft hearts and weeping eyes
 See thy great salvation.

4
[Thine’s an everlasting love;
 We have dearly tried thee;
 Whom have we in heaven above,
 Whom on earth beside thee?

5
What can helpless sinners do
 When temptations seize us?
 Nought have we to look unto
 But the blood of Jesus.]

6
Pardon all our baseness, Lord;
 All our weakness pity;
 Guide us safely by thy word
 To the heavenly city.

7
O sustain us on the road
 Through this desert dreary;
 Feed us with thy flesh and blood
 When we’re faint and weary.

8
Bid us call to mind thy cross,
 Our hard hearts to soften;
 Often, Saviour, feast us thus,
 For we need it often.
