Hymn/Song Information

Ye that pass by behold the Man The man of grief




Ye that pass by, behold the Man,
The Man of grief condemned for you;
The Lamb of God for sinners slain
Weeping to Calvary pursue.


His sacred limbs, they stretch, they tear,
With nails they fasten to the woodó
His sacred limbs exposed and bare,
Or only covered with His blood.


See there! His temples
crowned with thorns,
His bleeding hands extended wide;
His streaming feet transfixed and torn,
The fountain gushing from His side.


Thou dear, Thou suffering Son of God,
How doth Thy heart to sinners move!
Sprinkle on us Thy precious blood,
And melt us with Thy dying love.


here is the King of glory now
The everlasting Son of God?
Th' Immortal hangs his languid brow:
Th' Almighty faints beneath his load!


The earth could to her center quake,
Convulsed while her Creator died:
O let my inmost nature shake,
And die with Jesus crucified!


At thy last gasp the graves displayed
Their horrors to the upper skies:
O that my soul might burst the shade,
And, quickened by thy death, arise!


The rocks could feel thy powerful death,
And tremble, and asunder part:
O rend with thine expiring breath
The harder marble of my heart!
