O Lord, Your love did not recoil

1
O Lord, Your love did not recoil
  At sting of death and shame;
So may we overcome this age,
  The devil's power disclaim.
2
O Lord, You bore the heavy load
  On that foreboding path:
The sins of man, the devil's scorn,
  And God's all-righteous wrath.
3
The roaring wind and threat'ning waves
  At Your command must crest;
For this we worship and proclaim
  The name in which we rest.
4
Soon shall we in the Father's house
  Begin the newest songs,
But here where You have met our need
  E'en now new praise belongs.
