395: O SAVIOUR we would contemplate Theeby W. Anglin (1882-1965)
1 O SAVIOUR we would contemplate Thee
In all Thy pathway here so lowly,
Thy life so pleasing to Thy Father,
So perfect, faithful, and so holy.
2 Though Son of God, yet Man of Sorrows,
With human grief Thou wast acquainted,
Through want and woe Thy pathway leading,
Yet ever wast with sin untainted.
3 O Lord, we see Thee in the garden,
In agony of intercession,
With falling blood-drops, tears and crying,
We contemplate Thy holy passion.
4 O Saviour, we Thy cross remember,
When Thou, the weight of sin enduring,
Becam'st the holy spotless Victim,
For us eternal life securing.
5 By faith we see Thee high exalted,
The crown of glory ever wearing,
Where every heart and voice united,
"The Lamb is worthy" are declaring.
