128. INTO THE WOODS MY MASTER WENT

Church Hymnal 1941,


1.
Into the woods my Master went, 
Clean forspent, forspent, 
Into the woods my Master came, 
Forspent with love and shame. 
But the olives they were not blind to Him. 
The little grey leaves were kind to Him, 
The thorn tree had a mind to Him, 
When into the woods He came. 

2.
Out of the woods my Master went, 
And he was well content; 
Out of the woods my Master came, 
Content with death and shame. 
When death and shame would woo Him last, 
From under the trees they drew Him last, 
'Twas on a tree they slew Him last, 
When out of the woods He came.
