8772. Others He Saved

1 "Others He saved, Himself He could not save,"
So scoffed the priests, and upward rolled the wave
Of blasphemy against the dying Lord,
Until it broke upon the throne of God.

2 "Others He saved, Himself He did not save,"
So sighed the mourners round the Savior’s grave;
Their grief embittered by the mystery
Why He, who Lazarus raised, Himself need die.

3 "Others He saved, Himself He would not save,"
There rests the truth, His life for us He gave:
O ruined heart! thy Savior had to choose,
If He should die, or thou salvation lose.
