71*. Oh, My Saviour Crucified

by R. Chapman
Oh, my Saviour crucified,
Near Thy cross would I abide,
Gazing with adoring eye
On Thy dying agony.
Mark 15:13-20
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
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
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
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
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
