My Savior Goes to His Suffering

My Savior goes to suffer,
My Savior goes to suffer,
Goes to suffer,
His life for me to offer,
That I may live again
 
My Savior, my Savior goes to suffer,
His life for me to offer,
That I may live again;
That I may gain salvation
Within His congregation,
He bows His head and dies
 
Now here I stand and, weeping,
Now here I stand and, weeping,
Weeping for gladness,
For gladness that He saved me,
I praise His blessed name,
I praise His blessed name.
 
Oh love beyond comparing!
How shall I truly thank Him
For all He’s done for me?
How shall I truly thank Him
For all He’s done for me?
 
-Anon. Zeist, Holland (c. 1780), ed. K. Köpe
