Alone thou goest forth, O Lord, in sacrifice to die;
is this thy sorrow naught to us who pass unheeding by?
Our sins, not thine, thou bearest Lord, make us thy sorrow feel,
till through our pity and our shame love answers love's appeal.
This is earth's darkest hour but thou dost light and life restore;
then let all praise be given thee who livest evermore.
Give us compassion for thee, Lord, that as we share this hour,
thy cross may bring us to thy joy and resurrection power. Amen.
