When Christ among the sons of men In




When Christ, among the sons of men,
In humble form was found,
With cruel slanders false and vain,
They compassed him around.


He toiled their sorrows to remove,
Their welfare still pursued;
They rendered hatred for his love,
And evil for his good.


Their malice raged without a cause,
Yet with his dying breath
He prayed for murderers on his cross,
And blessed his foes in death.


Hark, from his goodness, e’er he dies
What words of mercy flow:
“Father, forgive them,” Jesus cries,
“They know not what they do.”


Let not this bright example shine
In vain before our eyes;
Lord, give us now a heart like thine,
To love our enemies.
