The Psalms And Hymns Of Isaac Watts by Isaac Watts

HYMN 16 The agonies of Christ.

C. M.

The agonies of Christ.

Now let our pains be all forgot,

Our hearts no more repine;

Our suff'rings are not worth a thought,

When, Lord, compared with thine.

In lively figures here we see

The bleeding Prince of love;

Each of us hope, he died for me,

And then our griefs remove.

[Our humble faith here takes her rise,

While sitting round his board;

And back to Calvary she flies,

To view her groaning Lord.

His soul, what agonies it felt

When his own God withdrew;

And the large load of all our guilt

Lay heavy on him too!

But the Divinity within

Supported him to bear;

Dying, he conquered hell and sin,

And made his triumph there.]

Grace, wisdom, justice joined and wrought

The wonders of that day;

No mortal tongue, nor mortal thought,

Can equal thanks repay.

Our hymns should sound like those above,

Could we our voices raise;

Yet, Lord, our hearts shall all be love,

And all our lives be praise.
