Hymn 112

 The brazen serpent; or, Looking to Jesus.
John 3:14-16.
So did the Hebrew prophet raise The brazen serpent high, The wounded felt immediate ease, The camp forbore to die.
"Look upward in the dying hour, And live," the prophet cries; But Christ performs a nobler cure, When Faith lifts up her eyes.
High on the cross the Savior hung, High in the heav'ns he reigns: Here sinners by th' old serpent stung Look, and forget their pains.
When God's own Son is lifted up, A dying world revives; The Jew beholds the glorious hope, Th' expiring Gentile lives.
