1. Crowned with thorns upon the tree,
Silent in Thine agony;
Dying, crushed beneath the load
Of the wrath and curse of God.

2. On Thy pale and suffering brow,
Mystery of love and woe;
On Thy grief and sore amaze,
Savior, I would fix my gaze!

3. On Thy holy, loving breast
Thou dost bid the weary rest;
Rest there from the world’s false ways,
Rest there from its vanities.

4. Rest in pardon and relief,
From the load of guilt and grief,
Rest in Thy redeeming blood,
Rest in perfect peace with God.

5. Sin-atoning Sacrifice,
Thou art precious in mine eyes;
Thou alone my rest shall be,
Now and thro’ eternity.

Guinness, Henry Grattan, .D.D., son of Capt. John Guinness of Dublin, was born at Mountpellier, near Dublin, in 1835. His work as an undenominational Preacher began in 1856, since which time he has visited most parts of the world in prosecuting his evangelistic labours. He has written numerous hymns and printed them privately to enclose in letters and parcels, and for general distribution. Of these the following were included in The Enlarged London Hymn Book 1873:— (1) "How beautiful the Saviour's feet" (Christ, in Glory); (2) "Thou art my joy, Lord Jesus" (The Glory of Jesus); (3) "Yes, Thou art mine, my blessed Lord" (Jesus our All). --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)… Go to person page >
