And the rough way that Thou hast trod,
Make us to hate the load of sin
That lay so heavy on our God.
3O holy Lord, uplifted high,
With outstretched arms, in mortal woe,
Embracing in Thy wondrous love
The sinful world that lies below:–

To gaze beyond the things we see;
And in the mystery of Thy Death,
Draw us and all men unto Thee. Amen.
John12:32And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
Philippians3:8Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,
