Holy Week Friday

“Behold the Savior of Mankind”,

by Samuel Wesley (father of John and Charles)

1. Behold the Savior of mankind
   Nailed to the shameful tree!
   How vast the love that Him inclined
   To bleed and die for thee!

2. Hark how He groans while nature shakes
   And earth's strong pillars bend!
   The Temple's veil in sunder breaks,
   The solid marbles rend.

3. 'Tis done; the precious ransom's paid;
   "Receive my soul!" He cries.
   See where He bows His sacred head;
   He bows His head and dies.

 4. But soon He'll break death's envious chain
    And in full glory shine.
    0 Lamb of God, was ever pain,
    Was ever love, like Thine?
