1.  O Thou, Who through this Holy Week

Did’st suffer for us all;

The sick to heal, the lost to seek,

To raise up them that fall.

2.  We cannot understand the woe

Thy love was pleased to bear;

O Lamb of God, we only know

That all our hopes are there.

3.  Thy feet the path of suff’ring trod;

Thy hands the victory won;

What shall we render to our God

For all that He hath done?
