O Christ, what burdens bowed Thy head


    • O Christ, what burdens bowed Thy head! 
    • Our load was laid on Thee; 
    • Thou stoodest in the sinner‟s stead, 
    • didst bear all ill for me. 
    • A victim led, Thy blood was shed; 
    • now there‟s no load for me. 

    • Death and the curse were in our cup: 
    • O Christ, „twas full for Thee! 
    • But Thou hast drained the last dark drop, 
    • „This empty now for me: 
    • that bitter cup, love drank it up: 
    • now blessing‟s draught for me. 

    • The tempest‟s awful voice was heard, 
    • O Christ, it broke on Thee! 
    • Thy open bosom was my ward, 
    • it braved the storm for me. 
    • Thy form was scarred, Thy visage 
    • marred, 
    • now cloudless peace for me. 

    • For me, Lord Jesus, Thou hast died, 
    • and I have died in Thee: 
    • Thou‟rt risen, my bands are all untied; 
    • and now Thou livest in me: 
    • when purified, made white and tried, 
    • Thy glory then for me!
