O Spotless Lamb Of God, In Thee
By Mary J. Walker
O spotless Lamb of God, in Thee
The Father’s holiness we see;
And with delight Thy children trace,
In Thee, His wondrous love and grace.
For Thou didst leave Thy throne above
To teach us that our God is Love;
And now we see His glory shine
In every word and deed of Thine.
When we behold Thee, Lamb of God,
Beneath our sin’s tremendous load,
Expiring on the accursèd tree
How great our guilt with grief we see.
There we with joy Thy grace behold;
Its height and depth can ne’er be told!
It bursts our chains and sets us free,
And sweetly draws our souls to Thee.
