Hymn Tune

What Thou, my Lord, hast suffered,

Was all for sinners’ gain;

Mine, mine was the transgression,

But Thine the deadly pain,

Lo, here I fall, my Savior!

‘Tis I deserve Thy place;

Look on me with Thy favor

And grant to me Thy grace.

Prayer: Thank You, Jesus, for suffering and dying on the cross to take away my sins. In Your name we pray, Amen.
