Behold the Lamb of God

5 lines, L.M., and Chorus

T. K. Collins

As sung by Mr. T. K. Collins, Arr'd by Wm. Houser

Wm. Houser

1.

Behold, behold the Lamb of God,

On the cross, on the cross!

He sheds for you his precious blood

On the cross, on the cross!

O hear his all important cry,

"Eli, lama sabachthani;"

Draw near and see your Savior die

On the cross, on the cross!

2.

Behold his arms extended wide

On the cross, on the cross!

Behold his bleeding hands and side

On the cross, on the cross!

The sun withhold his rays of light,

The heavens are clothed in shades of night,

While Jesus doth with devils fight

On the cross, on the cross!

3.

Come, sinners, see him lifted up

On the cross, on the cross!

For you he drinks the bitter cup

On the cross, on the cross!

The rocks do rend, the mountains quake,

While Jesus doth atonement make,

While Jesus suffers for our sake

On the cross, on the cross!

4.

And now the mighty deed is done

On the cross, on the cross!

The battle's fought, the victory's won

On the cross, on the cross!

To heaven he turns his dying eyes;

'Tis finished! now the Conqueror cries;

Then bows his sacred head and dies

On the cross, on the cross!

5.

Where'er I go I'll tell the story

Of the cross, of the cross!

Of nothing else my soul shall glory

Save the cross, save the cross!

Yea, this my constant theme shall be

Through time and in eternity,

That Jesus tasted death for me

On the cross, on the cross!

6.

Let every mourner rise and cling,

To the cross, to the cross!

Let every Christian come and sing,

Round the cross, round the cross!

There let the preacher take his stand,

And, with the Bible in his hand,

Declare the triumphs through the land,

Of the cross, of the cross!
