Hymn : ‘Tis the Christ

The third verse of ‘Tis the Christ by Thomas Kelly (1769-1854) is significant for Christians who have been saved for a while. It addresses the wrong idea that our sin was not very bad. But when you compare it to what it took to justify the ungodly (including me), God’s perspective is much different.

Ye who think of sin but lightly
Nor suppose the evil great
Here may view its nature rightly
Here its guilt may estimate
Mark the Sacrifice appointed
See Who bears the awful load
‘Tis the Word, the Lord’s Anointed
Son of Man and Son of God
