The Cords That Bound ~ Hymn

The Cords that bound my heart to earth
Are broken by His hand;
Before His cross I found myself
A stranger in the land.

That visage marr’d, those sorrows deep,
The vinegar and gall,
These were His golden chains of love
His captive to enthrall.

My hear is with Him on His throne
And ill can brook delay,
Each moment listening for the voice
“Rise up, and Come away!”

With hope deferred oft sick and faint,
“Why tarries He? I cry;
Let not the Saviour chide my haste,
For then would I reply:

“May not an exile, Lord, desire.”
His own sweet land to see?
“May not a captive seek release,”
A prisoner to be free?

“A child, when far away, may long”
For home and kindred dear;
And she, that waits her absent Lord”
May sigh till he appear.

I would, my Lord and Saviour, know”
That which no measure knows!
Would search the mystery of Thy love
The depths of all thy woes!
