52. O Jesus, crucified for man

L.M.

Intercession:

Arr. by John B. Dykes, 1853

W. Walsham How, 1871

O Jesus, crucified for man,

O Lamb, all glorious on thy throne,

Teach thou our wondering souls to scan

The mystery of thy love unknown.

We pray thee, grant us strength to take

Our daily cross, whate'er it be,

And gladly for thine own dear sake

In paths of pain to follow thee.

As on our daily way we go,

Through light or shade, in calm or strife,

O may we bear thy marks below

In conquered sin and chastened life.

And week by week this day we ask

That holy memories of thy cross

May sanctify each common task,

And turn to gain each earthly loss.

Grant us, dear Lord, our cross to bear

Till at thy feet we lay it down,

Win through thy blood our pardon there,

And through the cross attain the crown.

Amen.
