1. Lamb of God, for whom we languish,
Make thy grief our relief,
Ease us by thine anguish.

2. O our agonizing Savior,
By thy pain let us gain
God’s eternal favor.

3. Suffer sin no more to oppress us,
Set us free (all with me)
By thy bonds release us.

 

4. Clear us by thy condemnation;
Slain for all, let thy fall
Be our exaltation.

5. Thy deserts to us make over;
Speak us whole, every soul
By thy wounds recover.

6. Let us through thy curse inherit
Blessings’ store, love and power,
Fullness of thy Spirit.

 

7. The whole benefit of thy passion,
Present peace, future bliss,
All thy great salvation.

8. Power to walk in all well-pleasing
Bid us take, come and make
This th’ accepted season.

9. In thine own appointments bless us,
Meet us here, now appear,
Our Almighty Jesus.

 

10. Let the ordinance be sealing,
Enter now, claim us thou
For thy constant dwelling.

11. Fill the heart of each believer,
We are thine, love divine,
Reign in us for ever.
