|69 (2)||Psalm 69 Version 2||CM|
|COME, let us join with reverent fear
And thoughtful hearts to sing
The sufferings of our great High Priest,
The sorrows of our King.
|2||He sinks in floods of deep distress;
How high His trials rise!
While to His heavenly Fatherís ear
He sends those touching cries.
|3||They tread His honour in the dust,
With scorn and deep disdain;
Their sharp, incessant slanders add
New anguish to His pain.
|4||The fearful stroke for mortal sin,
The scandal and the shame,
Combine to break His bleeding heart,
And crush His sacred frame.
|5||Our Lord and Saviour rose again
To His eternal throne;
From triumph over deathís domain,
To reign in worlds unknown.
|Isaac Watts, 1674-1748á|
