My Jesus fair, was pierced by thorns
By thorns grown from the fall
Thus He who gave the curse was torn
To end that curse for all
O love divine, O matchless grace
That God should die for men!
With joyful grief I lift my praise,
Abhorring all my sin, adoring only Him
My Jesus meek, was scorned by men,
By men in blasphemy
"Father, forgive their senseless sin!"
He prayed, for them, for me
My Jesus kind, was torn by nails,
By nails of cruel men
And to His cross, as grace prevailed
God pinned my wretched sin
My Jesus pure, was crushed by God
By God, in judgement just
The Father grieved, yet turned His rod
On Christ, made sin for us
My Jesus strong, shall come to reign,
To reign in majesty
The Lamb arose, and death is slain
Lord, come in victory!
This song has been playing through my head throughout this past week. =) My Jesus...
