Hymn/Song Information

Angels lament behold your God Man's sin




Angels, lament; behold, your God
Man's sinful likeness wears;
Behold, upon the accursed tree
Man's sins the Saviour bears,


O Christ, with wondering minds we see
What mighty love was Thine
Did God consent to suffer thus.
And, oh, shall man repine?


No, Saviour, no! the power of death
Thy Cross hath overcome.
To save us, not from earthly woe
But from th' eternal doom.


The flesh may shrink, but we submit
Whate'er our Cross may be.
So Thou by grace enable us
To bear it after Thee.


Thy stripes have healed us, and Thy Blood
Our guilty stains effaced;
Then may Thy Name by sin of ours
Be never more disgraced.
