    Verse 1
    Behold the Saviour of mankind
    Nailed to the shameful tree!
    How vast the love that Him inclined
    To bleed and die for thee!

    verse 2
    Hark, how He groans! while nature shakes,
    And earth's strong pillars bend;
    The temple's veil in sunder breaks,
    The solid marbles rend.

    verse 3
    'Tis done! The precious ransom's paid;
    Receive My soul! He cries:
    See where He bows His sacred head!
    He bows His head, and dies!

    verse 4
    But soon He'll break death's envious chain,
    And in full glory shine;
    O Lamb of God, was ever pain,
    Was ever love, like Thine?
