This hymn has been on my mind for a few months.  Pay close attention to these beautiful words.


Title: "Behold the Lamb of God."
Hymn book: "The Good Old Songs"
page 701

 

1. Behold! behold the lamb of God!
On the cross, on the cross!
He sheds for you His precious blood,
On the cross, on the cross!
Oh, hear His all important cry,
"Eli lama sabachthani?"
Draw near and see your Saviour Die,
On the cross, on the cross!

2. Behold His arms extended wide,
On the cross, on the cross!
Behold his bleeding hands and side,
On the cross, on the cross!
The sun withholds his rays of light,
The heavens are clothed in shades of night,
While Jesus doth with devils fight,
On the cross, on the cross!

3. Come, brethren, see Him lifted up,
On the cross, on the cross!
For you He drinks the bitter cup,
On the cross, on the cross!
The rocks do rend, the mountains quake,
While Jesus doth atonement make,
While Jesus suffers for our sake,
On the cross, on the cross!

4. And now the mighty deed is done,
On the cross, on the cross!
The battle's fought, the victory's won,
On the cross, on the cross!
To heaven He turns his lanquid eyes,
"'T is finished," now the Conqueror cries,
Then bows His scared Head and dies,
On the cross, on the cross!

5. Where'er I go I'll tell the story
Of the cross, of the cross;
Of nothing else my soul shall glory,
Save the cross, save the cross!
Yea, this my constant theme shall be,
Through time and in eternity,
That Jesus tasted death for me,
On the cross, on the cross!

6. Let every mourner rise and cling
To the cross, to the cross!
Let every Christian come and sing
'Round the cross, 'round the cross!
There let the preacher take his stand,
And, with the Bible in his hand,
Declare the triumphs through the land,
Of the cross, of the cross!
