118 Windham. L.M. |Why Hast Thou Forsaken Me?|

|Why Hast Thou Forsaken Me?| (256)

From Calvary a cry was heard --
A bitter and heart-rending cry;
My Savior! ev'ry mournful word
Bespoke thy soul's deep agony

2 A horror of great darkness fell
On thee, thou spotless holy One!
And all the eager hosts of hell
Conspired to tempt God's only Son.

3 The scourge, the thorns, the deep disgrace,
These thou could'st bear, nor once repine;
But when Jehovah veiled his face,
Unutterable pangs were thine.

4 Let the dumb world its silence break;
Let pealing anthems rend the sky;
Awake, my sluggish soul, awake!
He died that we might never die.

John W. Cunningham, 1820.
