1 My crucified Saviour, despised and contemned,
Thou innocent Victim for sinners condemned,
Thy garments are blood-stained, Thy spirit doth groan,
In agony prostrate, Thou suff'rest alone.

2 Thou weepest and moanest in conflict and prayer,
And writhest in agony, pain and despair;
In thirty years' anguish our path Thou has trod,
And diest at last to redeem us to God.

3 Our Saviour thus finished God's plan with our race,
And laid the foundation for pardon and grace,
And then rose triumphant, the conquering Lord,
Appeased the Creator and mankind restored.

4 Restored to the bliss that was lost in the fall,
Yea, greater, for Jesus prepared for us all
Eternal salvation and mansions above;
Come, poor, burdened sinners, rejoice in His love.

5 Yea come, trembling sinner, come just as thou art,
Thy cares and thy sorrows to Jesus impart;
In Him seek salvation from death and the grave,
For Jesus is willing and might to save.
