Hymn 424 - "Thy death, O Lord, and sorrow"


Thy death, O Lord, and sorrow

 Have told Thy love divine;

The deepest depths were fathomed

In that great stoop of Thine.

Thy love beyond all measure

Was proved in Calv'ry's shame;

Thy path of love we treasure;

As ointment is Thy Name. 


And though Thou art in glory,

Thy love is still the same

As when its depth and fulness

Were told 'mid sin and shame.

Thy love o'er all has triumphed,

And made us ever Thine;

The power of death has witnessed

The strength of love divine.
