I am crucified with Christ. Galatians 2:20
Words: Herbert H. Booth, in Songs of the Nations, 1886.
Music: Wareham William Knapp, 1738 (🔊 pdf nwc).
Within my heart, O Lord, fulfill
The purpose of Thy death and pain,
That all may know Thou livest still
In blood-washed hearts to rule and reign.
O Lord, I gaze upon Thy face,
That suffering face so marred for me;
Touched by the wonders of Thy grace
My heart in love goes out to Thee.
O Savior, by Thy bleeding form
The world is crucified to me;
Thy loving heart, so rent and torn,
Thy suffering bids me share with Thee.
’Twas on the cross Thou didst redeem
My soul from sin and dark despair;
’Tis near the cross I would be seen,
And welcome every sinner there.
