Jesus when faith with fixed eyes




Jesus, when faith with fixed eyes,
Beholds thy wondrous sacrifice,
Love rises to an ardent flame,
And we all other hope disclaim!


With cold affections who can see
The thorns, the scourge, the nails, the tree;
Thy flowing tears and dewy sweat,
Thy bleeding hands, and head, and feet!


Look saints, by faith, and view his side,
The breach how large, how deep, how wide!
Thence issues forth a double flood,
Of cleansing water, pardoning blood.


Hence, oh my soul, a balsam flows,
To heal thy wounds, and ease thy woes;
Immortal joys come streaming down,
Joys, like his griefs, immense, unknown.


This I could ever, ever sing,
The sufferings of my Lord and King;
With growing pleasure spread abroad,
The mysteries of a dying God.
