JESUS DIED FOR MANKIND

Our sins were laid on His sacred head, The curse by our Lord was borne;For us a victim our Saviour bled, And endured that death of scorn;Himself He gave our poor hearts to win-- (Was ever love, Lord, like Thine!) From the paths of folly, and shame, and sin, And fill them with joys divine.

O Jesus, my Lord and Saviour,Who gavest Thy life for me, No room in my heart for pleasures That have not their trust in Thee;Earth has no abiding city,Not here is my place of rest, I seek for a brighter country,A home with the pure and blest. The world like a dream will vanish,The hope like the years decay, Its beauties like dewy blossoms Will wither and pass away;But Thou wilt abide unchanging,My sure defense wilt be;O Jesus my Lord and Saviour,I'm trusting alone in Thee.
