227. Lord, E'en to Death Thy Love Could Go

by Dr. Rossier, tr. by Miss Wellesley
Lord, e'en to death Thy love could go,
A death of shame and loss,
To vanquish for us every foe,
And break the strong man's force.
Philippians 2:5-8; 1 Corinthians 15:25-26; Hebrews 2:14; Matthew 12:29
Oh! what a load was Thine to bear
Alone in that dark hour,
Our sins in all their terror there,
God's wrath and Satan's power.
1 Peter 2:24; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Isaiah 63:3; Psalm 22:1
The storm that bowed Thy blessèd head
Is hushed forever now,
And rest divine is ours instead,
Whilst glory crowns Thy brow.
John 19:30; Matthew 11:28; Hebrews 2:7,9
Within the Father's house on high
We soon shall sing Thy praise,
But here, where Thou didst bleed and die,
We learn that song to raise.
John 14:2; Revelation 5:9
