When I See My Savior
- When I see my Savior, hanging on Calvary
Bearing there for sinners bitterest agony
Gratitude o'erwhelms me, makes mine eyes grow dim
All my ransomed being captive is to Him.
- I can see the blood-drops, red 'neath His thorny crown
From the cruel nail-wounds now they are falling down
Lord, when I would wander from Thy love away,
Let me see those blood-drops shed for me that day.
- "Why has thou forsaken?" list to that sad, sad moan!
Oh, His heart was broken, suffering there alone;
Broken then that mortals ne'er need cry in vain
For God's love and comfort, in the hour of pain.
