Verse 1: O Christ, eternal Son of God, The Lamb for sinners slain, We worship while Your head is bowed In agony and pain.
Verse 2: None tread with You the holy place; You suffer there alone; Yours is the perfect sacrifice Which only can atone.
Verse 3: O great High Priest, Your glory robes Are hid where none can see, And human sorrows, Son of Man, Have cloaked Your deity.
Verse 4: The cross is sharp, but of Your woes This is the lighter part; It is our sin that pierces You And breaks Your sacred heart.
Verse 5: Who love You most will seek Your cross And there will long abide; Now make that cross our only hope, O Jesus, crucified.
