1 Stretched on the cross the Savior dies,
Hark! his expiring groans arise:
See, from his hands, his feet, his side,
Runs down the sacred crimson tide.
2 But life attends the deathful sound,
And flows from every bleeding wound;
The vital stream, how free it flows,
To save and cleanse his rebel foes.
3 Can I survey this scene of woe,
Where mingling grief and wonder flow;
And yet my heart unmoved remain,
Insensible to love or pain?
4 Come, dearest Lord, thy grace impart,
To warn this cold, this stupid heart!
'Till all its powers and passions move
In melting grief, and ardent love.
