O love beyond all telling,
That led Thee to embrace,
In love all love excelling,

Are trembling, fear no more:
With love and grace the Saviour

Shall you to hope restore.
He comes: He comes, who sinners
Shall with the children place,
The children of His Father,

The heirs of life and grace.

3 Ride on! ride on in majesty!
The winged squadrons of the sky

Look down with sad and wondering eyes Bow Thy meek head to mortal pain,
To see the approaching sacrifice.
Then take, O God, Thy power, and reign.

4 Early hasten to the tomb

Where they laid His breathless clay:
All is solitude and gloom;
Who hath taken Him away?
Christ is risen! He meets our eyes.
Saviour, teach us so to rise.

James Montgomery, 1820 (Text of 1853)

3 Hark that cry that peals aloud
Upward through the whelming cloud!
Thou, the Father's only Son,
Thou, His own Anointed One,
Thou dost ask Him can it be?
"Why hast Thou forsaken Me?"
4 Lord, should fear and anguish roll
Darkly o'er my sinful soul,
Thou, who once wast thus bereft
That Thine own might ne'er be left,
Teach me by that bitter cry
In the gloom to know Thee nigh.

Rev. John Ellerton, 1875
