71*. Oh, My Saviour Crucified

7s.
by R. Chapman
1
Oh, my Saviour crucified,
 
Near Thy cross would I abide,
 
Gazing with adoring eye
 
On Thy dying agony.
Mark 15:13-20
2
Jesus bruised and put to shame,
 
Tells the glories of God's name;
 
Holy judgment there I found,
 
Grace did there o'er sin abound.
Psalm 69:7; Isaiah 53:5; Isaiah 50:6; Romans 5:20
3
God is love I surely know,
 
In the Saviour's depth of woe;
 
In the Sinless, in God's sight,
 
Sin is justly brought to light.
1 John 4:8; Psalm 69:2; 1 Peter 2:22
4
In His spotless soul's distress,
 
I have learnt my guiltiness;
 
Oh, how vile my low estate,
 
Since my ransom was so great.
1 Peter 1:19; Matthew 26:38-39; 1 Timothy 2:6
5
Rent the veil that closed the way
 
To my home of heavenly day,
 
In the flesh of Christ the Lord,
 
Ever be His name adored.
Matthew 27:51; Hebrews 10:20
6
Yet in sight of Calvary,
 
Contrite should my spirit be,
 
Rest and holiness there find,
 
Fashioned like my Saviour's mind.
Matthew 11:28-29; Philippians 2:5
“And they cried out again, Crucify him. Then Pilate said unto them, Why, what evil hath he done? And they cried out the more exceedingly, Crucify him. And so Pilate, willing to content the people, released Barabbas unto them, and delivered Jesus, when he had scourged him, to be crucified. And the soldiers led him away into the hall, called Praetorium; and they call together the whole band. And they clothed him with purple, and platted a crown of thorns, and put it about his head. And began to salute him, Hail, King of the Jews! And they smote him on the head with a reed, and did spit upon him, and bowing their knees worshipped him. And when they had mocked him, they took off the purple from him, and put his own clothes on him, and led him out to crucify him.” (Mark 15:13-20)
