284. Jesus, My Lord, Who Died on the Cross

9.6.9.6.
1
Jesus, my Lord, who died on the cross,
 
Lovely art Thou to me;
 
Silver and gold—I count them but dross;
 
Naught can compare with Thee.
2
What are earth's joys, so fleeting and vain,
 
Jesus, my Lord, to me!
 
Sweeter by far is the heavenly gain;
 
Lovely art Thou to me.
3
Storms may assail, my bark may be tossed,
 
Voyaging o'er life's sea;
 
Thou, Lord, art near, I cannot be lost,
 
Refuge art Thou to me.
4
Jesus, my Lord, 'twas sin's heavy load,
 
Th' curse that was borne by Thee;
 
Stroke upon stroke, as God's wrath awoke,
 
Fell upon Thee for me.
5
Jesus, my Lord, what oceans of love
 
Stirred in Thy heart for me!
 
Jesus, my Lord, in glory above,
 
Lovely art Thou to me.
