This song is part of the larger "Because He First Loved Us" Easter cantata.


Behold the great Redeemer die
A broken law to satisfy.
He dies a sacrifice for sin,
That man may live and glory win.

While guilty men his pains deride,
They pierce his hands, and feet and side;
And with insulting scoffs and scorns,
They crown his head with plaited thorns.

Although in agony he hung,
No murm'ring word escaped his tongue.
His high commission to fulfill,
He magnified his Father's will.

"Father, from me remove this cup.
Yet if thou wilt, I'll drink it up.
I've done the work thou gavest me,
Receive my spirit unto thee."

He died, and at the awful sight
The sun in shame withdrew its light!
Earth trembled, and all nature sighed
In dread response, "A God has died!"

(Words from LDS Hymn #191)
