Alto, Tenor & Bass:
The way is long and dreary,
The path is bleak and bare;
Our feet are worn and weary,
But we will not despair;
More heavy was Thy burden,
More desolate Thy way,

Soprano:Alto, Tenor & Bass
O Lamb of God, O Lamb of God,O Lamb of God, who takest
who takest The sinThe sin of the world away,
of the world away, HaveHave mercy on us,
mercy upon us.upon us.

Alto, Tenor & Bass:
The snows lie thick around us,
In the dark and gloomy night;
And the tempest wails above us,
And the stars have hid their light;
But blacker was the darkness
Round Calvary's Cross that day,

Soprano:Alto, Tenor & Bass
O Lamb of God, O Lamb of God,O Lamb of God, who takest
who takest The sinThe sin of the world away,
of the world away, HaveHave mercy on us,
mercy upon us.upon us.

Alto, Tenor & Bass:
Our hearts are faint with sorrow,
Heavy and sad to bear;
For we dread the bitter morrow,
But we will not despair;
Thou knowest all our anguish,
And Thou wilt bid it cease;

Soprano:Alto, Tenor & Bass:
O Lamb of God, O Lamb of God, who takest
O Lamb of God, who takest awayThe sin of the world away
the sin of the world,the sin of the world,
O Lamb of God, who takest awayO Lamb of God, who takest away
the sin of the world,the sin of the world
Give us thy peace,Give us thy peace,
O Lamb of God,O Lamb of God,
Give us Thy peace.Give us Thy peace.
