Hymns - Near the Cross, Her Vigil Keeping





 

Artist: Hymns
Album: Unknown
Title: Near the Cross, Her Vigil Keeping

Near the cross, her vigil keeping,
Stood the mother, worn with weeping,
Where He hung, the dying Lord;
Through her soul, in anguish groaning,
Bowed in sorrow, sighing, moaning,
Passed the sharp and piercing sword.

O the weight of her affliction!
Hers, who won Godís benediction,
Hers, who bore Godís Holy One:
O that speechless, ceaseless yearning!
O those dim eyes never turning
From her wondrous, suffering Son!

Who upon that mother gazing,
In her trouble so amazing,
Born of woman, would not weep?
Who of Christís dear mother thinking,
While her Son that cup is drinking,
Would not share her sorrow deep?

For His peopleís sin chastisŤd
She beheld her Son despisŤd,
Bound and bleeding íneath the rod;
Saw the Lordís Anointed taken,
Dying desolate, forsaken,
Heard Him yield His soul to God.

Near Thy cross, O Christ, abiding,
Grief and love my heart dividing,
I with her would take my place;
By Thy guardian cross uphold me,
In Thy dying, Christ, enfold me
With the deathless arms of grace.
