148. Behold the Lamb of God

6.6.6.4.8.8.4

St. John:

John B. Dykes, 1864

Matthew Bridges, 1848

Behold the Lamb of God!

O thou for sinners slain,

Let it not be in vain

That thou hast died:

Thee for my Savior let me take,

My only refuge let me make

Thy pierced side.

Behold the Lamb of God!

Into the sacred flood

Of thy most precious blood

My soul I cast:

Wash me and make me clean within,

And keep me pure from every sin,

Till life be past.

Behold the Lamb of God!

All hail, incarnate Word,

Thou everlasting Lord

Savior most blest;

Fill us with love that never faints,

Grant us with all thy blessèd saints,

Eternal rest.

Behold the Lamb of God!

Worthy is he alone,

That sitteth on the throne

Of God above;

One with the Ancient of all days,

One with the Comforter in praise,

All light and love.

Amen.
