Not illustrated. 1895 edition. Excerpt: ... Lamb of God, whose precious blood Can take a world's misdeeds away! Thou who didst bear the agony That made e'en Thy strong spirit quail, Yet ever yearnest still for me With longing love that ne'er shall fail, ---Twas Thou wast willing, Thou alone, To bear the righteous wrath of God; Thy death hath stilled it, else had none Found shelter from its awful load. 0 Love! who with unflinching heart Didst bear all worst disgrace and shame; O Love! who 'mid the keenest smart Of dying pangs wert still the same; Who didst Thy changeless virtue prove E'en with Thy latest parting breath, And spakest words of gentlest love When soul and body sank in death! O Love! through sorrows manifold Hast Thou betrothed me as a bride, By ceaseless gifts, by love untold, Hast bound me ever to Thy side. Oh, let the weary ache, the smart, Of life's long tale of pain and loss, Be gently stilled within my heart At thought of Thee and of Thy cross! 0 Love! who gav'st Thy life for me, And won an everlasting good Through Thy sore anguish on the tree, I ever think upon Thy blood; 1 ever thank Thy sacred wounds, Thou wounded Love, Thou Holiest! But most when life is near its bounds, And in Thy bosom safe I rest. O Love! who unto death hast grieved For this cold heart, unworthy Thine, WHEN I SURVEY THE WONDROUS CROSS. 187 Whom the cold grave and death received, I thank Thee for that grief divine. I give Thee thanks that Thou didst die To win eternal life for me, To bring salvation from on high: Oh, draw me up through love to Thee! WHEN I SURVEY THE WONDROUS CROSS. Dr. Isaac Watts, 1709. Glorying in the cross. G.iL ri. 14. One of the noblest hymns in the English or any other language, and truly classical in expression. Tin fourth stanza is omitted in most hymn-books.
