1O Christ, what burdens bowed Thy head!
Our load was laid on Thee;
Thou stoodest in the sinner’s stead,
Didst bear all ill for me.
A victim led, Thy blood was shed;
Now there’s no load for me.
2Death and the curse were in our cup:
O Christ, ’twas full for Thee!
But Thou hast drained the last dark drop,
’Tis empty now for me:
That bitter cup, love drank it up;
Now blessing’s draught for me.
3Jehovah lifted up His rod;
O Christ, it fell on Thee!
Thou wast sore stricken of Thy God;
There’s not one stroke for me.
Thy tears, Thy blood, beneath it flowed;
Thy bruising healeth me.
4The tempest’s awful voice was heard,
O Christ, it broke on Thee!
Thy open bosom was my ward,
It braved the storm for me.
Thy form was scarred, Thy visage marred;
Now cloudless peace for me.
5For me, Lord Jesus, Thou hast died,
And I have died in Thee:
Thou art risen– my hands are all untied;
And now Thou livest in me:
When purified, made white and tried,
Thy glory then for me!
