Original text and translations
All ye that pass by,
To Jesus draw nigh:
To you is it nothing that Jesus should die?
Your ransom and peace,
Your surety He is:
Come, see if there ever was sorrow like His.
For what you have done
His blood must atone:
The Father hath punished for you His dear Son.
The Lord, in the day
Of His anger, did lay
Your sins on the Lamb, and He bore them away.
He answered for all:
O come at His call,
And low at His cross with astonishment fall!
Ye all may receive
The peace He did leave,
Who made intercession, “My Father, forgive!”
