38 Then were there two thieves crucified with him, one on the right hand, and another on the left. 39 And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads, 40 And saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross. 41 Likewise also the chief priests mocking him, with the scribes and elders, said, 42 He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him. 43 He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God. 44 The thieves also, which were crucified with him, cast the same in his teeth. 45 Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour. 46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? 47 Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for Elias. 48 And straightway one of them ran, and took a sponge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink. 49 The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to save him.

     50 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.(KJV)

1. Jesus Christ, our Lord most holy, 
Lamb of God so pure and lowly, 
Blameless, blameless, on the cross art offered, 
Sinless, sinless, for our sins hast suffered. 

2. Weep now, all ye wretched creatures, 
As ye view His gracious features. 
Jesus, Jesus, on the cross is dying, 
Nature, nature, in dark gloom is sighing. 

3. Christ, His last word having spoken, 
Bows His head as life is broken. 
Mournful, mournful, stands His mother weeping, 
Loved ones, loved ones, silent watch are keeping. 

4. The great veil was torn asunder, 
Earth did quake mid roars of thunder, 
Boulders, boulders, into bits were breaking; 
Sainted, sainted, dead from death were waking. 

5. As His side with spear was riven, 
Blood and water forth were given. 
Jesus, Jesus, sinners’ only Savior, 
Mercy, mercy, grant to us forever.
