Behold the amazing sight!

Behold the amazing sight!
The Saviour lifted high;
the Son of God, his soul’s delight,
expires in agony.

2. For whom that broken heart?
For whom those sorrows borne?
Why did he feel that piercing smart,
and wear that crown of thorn?

3. For us in love he bled,
for us in anguish died;
such love as bowed his sacred head
and pierced his wounded side.

4. We see, and we adore,
we trust that dying love;
we feel its strong attractive power
to lift our souls above.

5. Behold the amazing sight!
View not his griefs alone,
but from the cross ascend the height
to his triumphant throne.
