We have sinned, and the pain of this
Cross is just. How can
We make any claim? But this Man
Has done nothing amiss.
We have sinned - whether beginner,
Runner, finisher, our race
Has been perverse, contrary to grace:
Yet, this Man receives sinners.
We have sinned - and sins release
Turmoil: outwith, against God, or men;
Within untwisting, twisting again,
But, this Man shall be peace.
