I thirst thou wounded Lamb of God




I thirst, thou wounded Lamb of God,
To wash me in thy cleansing blood,
To dwell within thy wounds; then pain
|: Is sweet, and life or death is gain. :|


Take my poor heart, and let it be
For ever closed to all but thee!
Seal thou my breast, and let me wear
|: That pledge of love for ever there! :|


How blest are they who still abide
Close sheltered in thy bleeding side,
Who life and strength from thence derive,
|: And by thee move, and in thee live. :|


What are our works but sin and death,
Till thou thy quickening Spirit breathe!
Thou giv'st the power thy grace to move;
|: O wondrous grace! O boundless love! :|


How can it be, thou heavenly King,
That thou shouldst us to glory bring?
Make slaves the partners of thy throne,
|: Decked with a never-fading crown? :|


Hence our hearts melt, our eyes o'erflow,
Our words are lost; nor will we know,
Nor will we think of aught beside,
|: "My Lord, my Love is crucified." :|


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


First-born of many brethren thou!
To thee, lo! all our souls we bow:
To thee our hearts and hands we give:
|: Thine may we die, thine may we live! :|
