The Death of One that Cannot Die

CXXIX 
A truth could not my heart unfathom why
How by the death of One who cannot die
That such a sinful mortal live for aye
With blood stained hands my guilt He sanctify

All hail the worthy lamb though priceless slain!
God's only Son, most perfect without blame
Such grace I undeservingly obtain
My hell and pain He suffered not in vain

With joyful grief I bind with altar cords
My fainted heart pierced by thy holy sword
Till it breaks out with songs of loving words
Of praise unto my King and Lord of lords

That day shall come when all would cease from strife.
And so as Thee will I be raised to life
