W. Walsham How, 1871
O Jesus, crucified for man,|
O Lamb, all glorious on thy throne,
Teach thou our wondering souls to scan
The mystery of thy love unknown.
2. We pray thee, grant us strength to take
3. As on our daily way we go,|
Through light or shade, in calm or strife,
O may we bear thy marks below
In conquered sin and chastened life.
4. And week by week this day we ask
5. Grant us, dear Lord, our cross to bear|
Till at thy feet we lay it down,
Win through thy blood our pardon there,
And through the cross attain the crown.
