From the throne of his cross (The Appeal Of The Crucified)

Composer

SATB and Organ

From The Crucifixion

Text

From the Throne of His Cross, the King of grief
cries out to a world of unbelief:
Oh! men and women, afar and nigh,
is it nothing to you, all ye that pass by?

I laid my eternal power aside,
I came from the home of the glorified, 
a babe, in the lowly cave to lie;
is it nothing to you, all ye that pass by?

I wept for the sorrows and pains of men,
I healed them, and helped them, and loved them; but then
they shouted against me, Crucify!
Is it nothing to you, all ye that pass by?

Behold me and see: pierced through and through
with countless sorrows and all is for you;
for you I suffer, for you I die;
is it nothing to you, all ye that pass by?

Oh! men and women, your deeds of shame,
your sins without reason and number and name,
I bear them all on this Cross on high;
is it nothing to you, all ye that pass by?

Is it nothing to you that I bow my head?
And nothing to you that my blood is shed?
Oh, perishing souls, to you I cry;
is it nothing to you, all ye that pass by?

Oh come unto me! by the woes I have borne,
by the dreadful scourge, and the crown of thorn,
by these I implore you to hear my cry;
Ii it nothing to you, all ye that pass by?

Oh come unto me! this awful price,
redemption's tremendous sacrifice,
is paid for you. Oh, why will ye die?
Is it nothing to you, all ye that pass by?
