I Saw One Hanging On A Tree
Franz Joseph Haydn
A. H. M.
Arr. from Rossini
I saw One hanging on a tree,
In agony and blood;
He fixed His languid eyes on me
As near His cross I stood.
Sure, never, till my latest breath,
Can I forget that look;
It seemed to charge me with His death,
Tho' not a word He spoke.
My conscience felt and owned the guilt,
And plunged me in despair;
I saw my sins His blood had spilt
And helped to nail Him there.
Alas! I knew not what I did,
But now my tears are vain;
Where shall my trembling soul be hid?
For I the Lord have slain.
A second look He gave which said,
"I freely all forgive:
This blood is for thy ransom paid,
I die that thou mayst live."
