1 Yonder--amazing Sight!--I see
Th' incarnate Son of God,
Expiring on the accursed Tree,
And welt'ring in his Blood.
2 Behold a purple Torrent run
Down from his Hands and Head:
The crimson Tide puts out the Sun;
His Groans awake the Dead.
3 The Trembling Earth, the darken'd Sky,
Proclaim the Truth aloud!
And with th' amaz'd Centurion cry,
"This is the Son of GOD."
4 So great, so vast a Sacrifice,
May well my Hope revive:
If God's own Son thus bleeds and dies,
The Sinner sure may live.
5 O that these Cords of Love Divine,
Might draw me, LORD, to Thee!
Thou hast my Heart, it shall be thine--
Thine it shall ever be!
