1 O Jesu, crucified for man,
O Lamb, all glorious on Thy throne,
Teach Thou our wond'ring souls to scan
The myst'ry of Thy love unknown.
2 We pray Thee, grant us strength to take
Our daily cross, whate'er it be,
And gladly for Thine own dear sake
In paths of pain to follow Thee.
3 As on our daily way we go,
Thro' light or shade, in calm or strife,
Oh! may we bear Thy marks below
In conquered sin and chastened life.
4 And week by week this day we ask
That holy mercies of Thy cross
May sanctify each common task,
And turn to gain each daily loss.
5 Grant us, dear Lord, our cross to bear
Till at Thy feet we lay it down,
Win thro' Thy blood our pardon there,
And thro' the cross attain the crown.
