Behold, where in a mortal form

Full Text

1 Behold, where in a mortal form
Appears each grace divine!
The virtues, all in Jesus met,
With mildest radiance shine.

2 To spread the rays of heavenly light,
To give the mourner joy,
To preach glad tidings to the poor,
Was His divine employ.

3 'Midst keen reproach and cruel scorn,
Patient and meek He stood.
His foes, ungrateful, sought His life;
He labored for their good.

4 In the last hours of deep distress,
Before His Father's throne,
With soul resigned He bowed, and said,
"Thy will, not mine, be done!"

5 Be Christ our Pattern and our Guide!
His image may we bear!
O may we tread His holy steps,
His joys and glory share!

Amen.

Notes

Behold, where in a mortal form [the Friend of Man] . W. Enfield. [Christ our Example.] Appeared in the 3rd edition of his Hymns for Public Worship, &c, 1797, in 8 stanzas of 4 lines. It passed from thence into Bickersteth's Christian Psalmody, 1833, Reed's Hymn-Book, 1842, and others. In the Baptist New Selection, 1828, No. 120, it was given as, “Behold, where in the Friend of Man," with the omission of stanza ii., and in this form it is found in the Baptist Psalms & Hymns, 1858. The hymn is also in common use in America. The first form, abbreviated, is in Songs for the Sanctuary, N. Y., 1865, and the second is in Hymns & Songs of Praise, N. Y., 1874, and others.
