Hymn #40.
This hymn would indicate that its author Miss Wellesley entered much into the meaning of the precious remembrance of Christ in His death, the value of His blood delivering us from our lost estate.
“Oh Thou great all-gracious Shepherd,
Shedding for us Thy life’s blood,
Unto shame and death delivered,
All to bring us nigh to God!
Now our willing hearts adore Thee,
Now we taste Thy dying love,
While by faith we come before Thee—
Faith which lifts our souls above.
“As our surety we behold Thee,
Ransoming our souls from death,
As the willing victim view Thee,
Yielding up to God Thy breath.
In this broken bread we own Thee
Bruised for us and put to shame,
And this cup, Oh Lord, we thank Thee,
Speaks our pardon through Thy Name.”
