Thou Man of Grief (Kedron) 48b

Tune: United States Sacred Harmony, 1799
Alto: Wilson Marion Cooper, 1902
Lyrics: Charles Wesley, 1762
Meter: Long Meter (8,8,8,8)
Thou Man of grief, remember me,
Who never canst Thyself forget.
Thy last expiring agony,
Thy fainting pangs and bloody sweat.

Father, if I may call Thee so,
Regard my fearful heartís desire;
Remove this load guilty of woe,
Nor let me in my sins expire!

I tremble, lest the wrath divine,
Which bruises now my wretched soul,
Should bruise this wretched soul of mine,
Long as eternal ages roll.
