Hymn 192 - "We love, Lord Jesus, to recall"


We love, Lord Jesus, to recall

Thyself, for Thou hast giv'n Thine all

For us on Calv'ry's tree.

To Thee in thankfulness we turn,

With souls that glow, with hearts that yearn

Thy glory, Lord, to see.



Lost in Thy love, Thy death we deem

Our point of severence from this scene

Where man Thy rights did spurn;

To us earth stands in shadow now,

'Tis but Thy grave and ours, till Thou,

Lord Jesus, shalt return.



No earth-bound prospect would we know,

But stand expectant, while we show

Thy death as years roll on.

Thy perfect love our strength shall be

To hold in faith and constancy

The ground that Thou hast won.
