What Is Man?

Ah what is man, that thou should’st come
      And die on Calvary?
How could a Holy God endure
      That awful agony?

That He who lived a sinless life
      Should drink the ‘cup’ for me?
Endure the very guilt of sin
      And die to set me free?

Lord Jesus, ‘Babe of Bethlehem’
      And ‘Lamb of Calvary’!
Now ‘Risen Lord’–I bow myself
      In gratitude to Thee.
