SEE the Lord of glory dying,

See him gasping, hear him crying;

See his burden'd bosom heave;

Look, ye sinners, ye that hung him,

Look, how deep your sins have stung him;

Dying sinners, look and live.

See the rocks and mountains quaking,

Earth unto her center shaking;

Nature's groans awake the dead.

Lo, the sun is struck with wonder,

While the legal peals of thunder

Smite the dear Redeemer's head.

Heaven's bright melodious legions,

Chanting through the tuneful regions,

Cease to thrill the quivering strings,

Songs seraphic all suspended,

Till the mighty war was ended

By the all-victorious King.

Hell, and all the powers infernal,

Vanquish'd by the King Eternal,

When he pour'd the vital flood;

By his groans which shook creation,

Lo! we found a proclamation:

Peace and pardon by his blood.

Shout, ye saints with adoration-

Fill, with songs, the wide creation,

He is risen from the grave;

Shout with joyful acclamation,

To the Rock of your salvation,

Who alone has power to save.

Bear with patience, tribulation,

Overcoming all temptation,

Till the glorious jubilee;

He will come with bursts of thunder,

Then shall we adore and wonder,

Singing on the highest key.
