Trinity Hymnal

Jesus Christ, our Lord most holy — Teshiniens

Original Trinity Hymnal, #196

Jesus Christ, our Lord most holy,
Lamb of God so pure and lowly,
Blameless, blameless, on the cross art offered,
Sinless, sinless, for our sins hast suffered.

Weep now, all ye wretched creatures,
As ye view his gracious features.
Jesus, Jesus, on the cross is dying,
Nature, nature, in dark gloom is sighing.

Christ, his last word having spoken,
Bows his head as life is broken.
Mournful, mournful, stands his mother weeping,
Loved ones, loved ones, silent watch are keeping.

The great veil was torn asunder,
Earth did quake 'mid roars of thunder,
Boulders, boulders, into bits were breaking;
Sainted, sainted dead from death were waking.

As his side with spear was riven,
Blood and water forth were given.
Jesus, Jesus, sinners' only Saviour,
Mercy, mercy, grant to us for ever.
