83. Behold the Lamb of God!

1 Behold the Lamb of God!
O thou for sinners slain,
Let it not be in vain
That thou hast died.
Thee for my Saviour let me take,
My only refuge let me make
Thy pierced side!

2 Behold the Lamb of God!
Into the sacred flood
Of thy most precious Blood
My soul I cast;
Wash me and make me clean within,
And keep me pure from every sin,
Till life be past. A-men.

3 Behold the Lamb of God!
All hail, incarnate Word!
Thou everlasting Lord,
Saviour most blest!
Fill us with love that never faints,
Grant us, with all thy bless├Ęd saints,
Eternal rest.

4 Behold the Lamb of God!
Worthy is he alone
To sit upon the throne
Of God above,
One with the Ancient of all days,
One with the Comforter in praise,
All Light, all Love!
