52*. Behold! Behold the Lamb of God

P.M.

Behold! behold the Lamb of God
 
On the cross;
 
For us He shed His precious blood,
 
On the cross.
 
Oh, hear the overwhelming cry:
 
"Eli lama sabachthani?"
 
Draw near and see the Saviour die
 
On the cross.
John 1:29; Matthew 27:35-50; Matthew 26:28; John 19:34; Matthew 27; 46; John 19:30

Come, sinner, see Him lifted up
 
On the cross:
 
He drinks for you the bitter cup,
 
On the cross;
 
The rocks do rend, the mountains quake,
 
While Jesus doth atonement make—
 
While Jesus suffers for our sake,
 
On the cross.
John 3:14; Luke 22:42; Matthew 27:51

Where'er I go I'll tell the story
 
Of the cross;
 
In nothing else my soul shall glory
 
Save the cross;
 
Yea, this my constant theme shall be,
 
Through time and in eternity,
 
That Jesus tasted death for me
 
On the cross.
Galatians 6:14; Hebrews 2:9
“The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.” (John 1:29)
“And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots. And sitting down they watched him there. And set up over his head his accusation written, THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS. Then were there two thieves crucified with him, one on the right hand, and another on the left. And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads. And saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross. Likewise also the chief priests mocking him, with the scribes and elders, said. He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him. He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God. The thieves also, which were crucified with him, cast the same in his teeth. Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for Elias. And straightway one of them ran, and took a spunge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink. The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to save him. Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.” (Matthew 27:35-50)
“For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.” (Matthew 26:28)
“But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.” (John 19:34)
“When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.” (John 19:30)
“And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up.” (John 3:14)
“Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.” (Luke 22:42)
“And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent.” (Matthew 27:51)
“But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.” (Galatians 6:14)
“But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.” (Hebrews 2:9)
