302. Come to the Place of Grief and Shame

1 Come to the place of grief and shame;
come to the stricken Savior's side.
Alone, rejected, wounded, scorned,
Jesus our Lord is crucified!

2 O break, O break, hard heart of mine!
Thy weak self-love and guilty pride
his Pilate and his Judas were:
Jesus our Lord is crucified!

3 A broken heart, a fount of tears,
ask, and they will not be denied.
A broken heart love's cradle is:
Jesus our Lord is crucified!

4 O love of God! O pow'r of sin!
In this dread act your strength is tried,
and victory remains with love:
Jesus our Lord is crucified.
