To Calvary Lord in spirit now Our weary souls




To Calvary, Lord, in spirit now
Our weary souls repair,
To dwell upon Thy dying love,
And taste its sweetness there.


Sweet resting-place of every heart
That feels the plague of sin,
Yet knows the deep, mysterious joy
Of peace with God within.


There, through Thine hour of deepest woe,
Thy suffering Spirit passed;
Grace there its wondrous victory gained,
And love endured its last.


O Lamb of God! Thy bleeding wounds,
With cords of love divine,
Have drawn our willing hearts to Thee,
And linked our life with Thine.


Our longing eyes would fain behold
That bright and blessèd brow,
Once wrong with bitterest anguish, wear
Its crown of glory now.


The sympathies and hopes are ours:
We long, O Lord, to see
Creation all—below, above,
Redeemed and blessed by Thee.


O Saviour, linger not but come,
Responsive to our call;
Come, claim Thy kingly power and reign,
The Heir and Lord of all.

Dear suffering Lamb! Thy bleeding wounds,
With cords of love divine,
Have drawn our willing hearts to Thee,
And linked our life with Thine.


Thy sympathies and hopes are ours:
Dear Lord! we wait to see
Creation, all below, above,
Redeemed and blest by Thee.


Why linger then? Come, Saviour, come,
Responsive to our call;
Come, claim Thine ancient power, and reign
The Heir and Lord of all.
