MORE marred than any man’s
   The Saviour’s visage see;
Was ever sorrow like to His
    Endured on Calvary?
2      O, hear that piercing cry!
    What can its meaning be?
‘My God! my God! O, why hast Thou
    In wrath forsaken me?’
3      The sum of all our sins
    On Him by God were laid;
He Who Himself had never sinned,
    For sinners, sin was made.
4      Thus sin He put away
    By His one sacrifice,
Then, victor over death and hell,
    He mounted to the skies.
5      Let every sinner know
    That God is satisfied;
And all who in the Saviour trust,
    Through Him are justified.
William Russell, 19th century
