1.  Thou goest go Jerusalem,

O Son of God, to suffer,

And for a world of sinful men

Thy spotless life to offer;

Thou bearest anguish, pain, and loss,

The mockers’ scorn, the scourge, the cross,

To win for us salvation.

2.  Before Thee lies Gethsemane,

The scene of bitter anguish;

Thine eyes behold the Calvary

Where Thou in pain must languish;

The bleeding wounds, the bitter gall,

The crown of thorns, the judgment hall,

The burdened soul’s affliction.

3.  Thou art the Way, the Truth, the Life;

We pray Thee, Master, lead us

Away from earth’s vain, restless strife;

With heavenly manna feed us.

Thou who hast died to save the lost,

Help us, dear Lord, to weigh the cost,

And follow Thee, our Saviour.
