As He was taken by constraining force
And from all semblance of true equity
His captors were not those men thought as course,
But those marked by refined iniquity;
What generations spring from such a Man,
Cut off and having nothing in the land?
Of those who live? He has no partisan
Or fellow who can truly understand.
So for the Jews’ transgressions He was struck
But all may cling by faith to Jesus’ work
Through which God is omnipotent to save;
But if the hand of Jesus was to pluck
Brands from the fire, and from the sins that lurk
The Lord must lie in His appointed grave.
