Behold the amazing sight

Full Text

1 Behold th'amazing sight,
The Saviour lifted high!
Behold the Son of God's delight
Expire in agony.

2 For whom, for whom, my heart,
Were all these sorrows borne?
Why did He feel that piercing smart,
And meet that various scorn?

3 For love of us He bled,
And all in torture died;
'Twas love that bowed His fainting head,
And ope'd His gushing side.

4 In sympathy of love
Let all the earth combine;
And, drawn by cords so gentle, prove
The energy divine.

5 In Him our hearts unite,
Nor share His griefs alone,
But from His cross pursue their flight
To His triumphant throne.

Amen.

In 1755, Job Orton included it in his edition of Doddridge's (posthumous) Hymns, &c, No. 233, in 6 stanzas of 6 lines. It is repeated in J. D. Humphreys's edition of the same, 1839. It is in common use both in Great Britain and America.
