Intensity of sin - for man
Spurning God's pleadings to repent
Inflicts all evil that he can
Upon the Man whom God has sent.

Intensity of evil power
For Satan, mustering his resource,
Assaults Christ in the darkened hour
With all his concentrated force.

Intensity of sin - the Lord
Takes on its power and hideousness
Until, beneath God's judgement-sword,
In love, He is made sin for us.

Intensity of love - the Friend,
Loving His friends, lays down His life;
Love leads Him to this savage end
For God, His people, and His wife.
