ATONEMENT OF CHRIST




Lo, the eternal Word
Assumes our flesh and dies!
Amased I see him bloody sweat,
And hear his plaintive cries.


By faith I view him there,
Nailed to the fatal tree;
And realize the pains he bore,
For such a worm as me.


When my dear Saviour died,
All nature seemed to mourn;
The sun in darkness veiled his face,
The solid rocks were torn.


Thus he atonement made
For crimes of deepest dye;
And now he sends the Spirit down,
His merits to apply.


Ill make his name my trust,
And glory in his cross;
For him Id part with all my gains,
And count those gains but loss.
