THE SAVIOR, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Behold the savior of mankind
Last Line: Was ever love like thine?
Subject(s): Jesus Christ

Behold the Saviour of mankind
Nailed to the shameful tree;
How vast the love that Him inclined
To bleed and die for me.

Hark! how He groans, while nature shakes,
And earth's strong pillars bend!
The Temple's veil asunder breaks,
The solid marbles rend.

'Tis finished! now the ransom's paid,
"Receive My soul!" He cries;
See--how He bows His sacred head!
He bows His head and dies!

But soon He'll break death's iron chain,
And in full glory shine.
O Lamb of God! was ever pain--
Was ever love like Thine?
