Behold, Behold the Lamb of God

Song lyrics to Behold, Behold the Lamb of God – lyrics by Joseph Hoskins (1745-1788)

Behold, behold the Lamb of God
On the cross! On the cross!
For us He shed His precious blood
On the cross! On the cross!
Oh hear the overwhelming cry—
“Eli lama sabachthani,”
Draw near and see the Saviour die
On the cross! On the cross!

See, see His arms extended wide
On the cross! On the cross!
Behold His bleeding hands and side
On the cross! On the cross!
The sun withholds his rays of light,
The heavens are clothed in shades of night;
While Jesus wins the glorious fight
On the cross! On the cross!

Come, sinners, see Him lifted up
On the cross! On the cross!
He drinks for you the bitter cup
On the cross! On the cross!
The rocks do rend, the mountains quake,
While Jesus doth atonement make,
While Jesus suffers for our sake,
On the cross! On the cross!

Where’er I go I’ll tell the story
Of the cross! Of the cross!
In nothing else my soul shall glory,
Save the cross! Save the cross!
Yes; this my constant theme shall be,
Through time, and in eternity,
That Jesus tasted death for me
On the cross! On the cross!
