OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST
154
2 From heaven He came, of heaven he spoke, 3 " Come, wanderers, to My Father's home, To heaven He led His followers' way;          Come, all ye weary ones, and rest: "
Dark clouds of gloomy night He broke, Yes, sacred Teacher, we will come, Unveiling an immortal day.                              Obey Thee, love Thee, and be blessed.
John Bowring, 1823

2   O Who like Thee, so mild, so bright,      4 And death, that sets the prisoner free, Thou Son of Man, Thou Light of light,      Was pang, and scoff, and scorn to Thee; O Who like Thee did ever go                       Yet love through all Thy torture glowed, So patient, through a world of woe?            And mercy with Thy life-blood flowed.
3   O Who like Thee, so humbly bore          5 O wondrous Lord, my soul would be The scorn, the scoffs of men, before?          Still more and more conformed to Thee. So meek, so lowly, yet so high, And learn of Thee, the lowly One,
So glorious in humility?                                  And like Thee, all my journey run.
Bishop Arthur Cleveland Coxe, 1838 j
