Assuage our ev'ry pain, To help them in distress;
His bitter suff'rings, cries and pray'rs, He ready was, by day and night,

That he a man of sorrows was,

May in our Saviour's walk on earth That all, who'my behaviour see,
Pattern and comfort read. May some resemblance trace. 4 Among the evils of the fall 10 Grant me that meek and lowly mind, This the most dreadful is of all,
Which soul and body grieve,

While tears of anguish flow ! He, to ransom sinners,
And did we not the suff’ring Lamb, 2 He fulfilld all righteousness,
The Friend of sinners know; Standing in the sinner's place;
7 A contrite heart would never cease From the manger to the cross,
To weep most bitter tears; All he did, he did for us:
But faith in Jesus' saving grace
The mourning sinner cheers. 3 All our woes he did retrieve, He expir'd that we might live;
8 Whenwe have that great bliss attain'd
To find, that in all need, By his stripes our wounds are heald,
Christ is our Counsellor and Friend, By his blood our pardon's seald.
Then are we help'd indeed, 4 Lord, conform us to thy death, 9 O'tis the greatest happiness, Raise us to new life by faith,
When of his
