Thy grief and bitter Passion were all for sinners' gain; mine, mine was the transgression, but thine the deadly pain. 3 What language shall I borrow to praise thee, heavenly Friend, for this, thy dying sorrow, thy pity without end? O make me thine for ever, and, should I fainting be, Lord, let me never, never outlive my love for thee. 4 Be near me, Lord, when dying; O show thy cross to me; and, my last need supplying, come, Lord, and set me free; these eyes, new faith receiving, from thee shall never move; for they who die believing die safely through thy love.
