Lie still, lie still - All in Him
(Horatius Bonar/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

All in Him.

1. Lie still, lie still,
  at foot of yonder cross;
O troubled heart,
  exchange all gain for loss,
all loss for gain.
  Part with thy earthly dross,
each idol slay
  that would the soul engross.

2. Lay down the load
  upon yon silent stone,
where lay thy Lord,
  alone, yet not alone,
in holy death,
  his mighty work all done,
the ransom paid,
  th' eternal triumph won.

3. Bury thy sin
  in that deep, awful grave
from which thy Lord –
  who death for death there gave,
that thou in him
  might'st resurrection have –
arose in life,
  to quicken and to save.

4. Fret not thyself
  with needless grief and care,
for not thy guilt
  alone he took and bare,
but all the tears
  and sighs upon him were,
of which each son
  of Adam is the heir.

Horatius Bonar, Hymns of the Nativity, 1879, 56-57.
