The Look of Pleasing Grief and Mournful Joy

I saw one hanging on a treeIn agony and bloodWho fixed His loving eyes on meAs near His cross I stoodAnd never till my dying breathWill I forget that lookIt seemed to charge me with His deathThough not a word He spokeMy conscience felt and owned the guiltAnd plunged me in despairI saw my sins His blood had spiltAnd helped to nail Him thereBut with a second look He said???I freely all forgivethis blood is for your ransom paidI died that you might live???Forever etched upon my mindIs the look of Him who diedThe Lamb I crucifiedAnd now my life will sing the praiseOf pure atoning graceThat looked on me and gladly took my placeThus while His death my sin displaysFor all the world to viewSuch is the mystery of graceIt seals my pardon tooWith pleasing grief and mournful joyMy spirit now is filledThat I should such a life destroyYet live by Him I killed.

The Look of Pleasing Grief and Mournful Joy

I saw one hanging on a tree
In agony and blood
Who fixed His loving eyes on me
As near His cross I stood
And never till my dying breath
Will I forget that look
It seemed to charge me with His death
Though not a word He spoke

My conscience felt and owned the guilt
And plunged me in despair
I saw my sins His blood had spilt
And helped to nail Him there
But with a second look He said
“I freely all forgive
this blood is for your ransom paid
I died that you might live”

Forever etched upon my mind
Is the look of Him who died
The Lamb I crucified
And now my life will sing the praise
Of pure atoning grace
That looked on me and gladly took my place

Thus while His death my sin displays
For all the world to view
Such is the mystery of grace
It seals my pardon too
With pleasing grief and mournful joy
My spirit now is filled
That I should such a life destroy
Yet live by Him I killed.

O precious sight, my Savior stands
Dying for me with outstretched hands
O precious sight, I love to gaze
Remembering salvation’s day
Remembering salvation’s day

Though my eyes linger on this scene
May passing time and years not steal
The power with which it impacts me
The freshness of it’s mystery
The freshness of it’s mystery

May I never lose the wonder, the wonder of the cross
May I see it like the first time, standing as a sinner lost
Undone by mercy and left speechless, watching wide eyed at the cost
May I never lose the wonder, the wonder of the cross

Behold the God-man crucified
The perfect sinless sacrifice
As blood ran down those nails and wood
History was split in two
Yes, History was split in two

Behold the empty wooden tree
His body gone, alive and free
We sing with everlasting joy
For sin and death have been destroyed
Yes sin and death have been destroyed
