Christ My Song - 750
Look on the better sacrifice, O Lord - The better sacrifice
(Horatius Bonar/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
The better sacrifice.
2. Look on the better sacrifice, O Lord,
and when thou lookest, then converse with me!
Beside thy sacrifice I take my stand,
and standing there, I would converse thee.
3. Look on the better sacrifice, O Lord,
and when thou lookest shine, then shine on me!
It is through this alone thou speakest peace,
and all my sunshine is alone from thee.
4. The better sacrifice, it sets me free;
it brings to me the comfort from above;
it opens wide to me the boundless grace,
the fulness of thine everlasting love.
Horatius Bonar, "Until the Day break", 1890, 54-56.
