2 When no eye its pity gave us,
When there was no arm to save us,
He His love and power displayed: By His stripes He wrought our healing, By His death, our life revealing,
He for us the ransom paid.
3 Jesus, may Thy love constrain us, That from sin we may refrain us,
In Thy griefs may deeply grieve: Thee our best affections giving, To Thy glory ever living,
May we in Thy glory live.
Latin. Tr. by Rev. J. W. Alexander, 18+2
2  When the woes of life o'ertake me,
Hopes deceive, and fears annoy, Never shall the cross forsake me: Lo! it glows with peace and joy.
3  When the sun of bliss is beaming
Light and love upon my way, From the cross the radiance streaming, Adds new luster to the day.
4  Bane and blessing, pain and pleasure,
By the cross are sanctified; Peace is there that knows no measure, Joys that through all time abide.
5  In the cross of Christ I glory,
Towering o'er the wrecks of time; All the light of sacred story
Gathers round its head sublime.
J. BOWRING, 1825
