Set forth before our eyes,
As fastened to the tree
The Lord of earth and skies,
Th’eternal God we see,
God over all in form of man,
Jehovah for His creatures slain!

Who call Thy death to mind,
Let us its virtues prove,
The Lover of mankind,
The Friend of sinners love,
Whose death is immortality,
Is glorious life, and Heaven to me.
