O come Thou stricken Lamb of God




O come, Thou
stricken Lamb of God!
Who shedíst for us
Thine own life-blood,
And teach us all Thy love:
then pain
Were sweet, and life
or death were gain.


Take Thou our hearts,
and let them be
For ever closed to all but Thee;
Thy willing servants, let us wear
The seal of love for ever there.


How blest are they who still abide
Close sheltered by Thy watchful side;
Who life and strength
from Thee receive,
And with Thee move,
and in Thee live!


Ah, Lord! enlarge our
scanty thought
To know the wonders
Thou hast wrought;
Unloose our stammíring
tongues to tell
Thy love, immense, unsearchable.


First-born of many brethren, Thou!
To whom both heaven
and earth must bow!
Heirs of Thy shame
and of Thy throne,
We bear the cross,
and seek the crown.

O Come, Thou stricken
Lamb of God!
Who shed'st for us
Thine own life-blood,
And teach us all
Thy loveóthen pain
In life were sweet
and death were gain.
