“Behold the Man!” poor Pilate cried,
Knowing the Master’s innocence:
And centuries of saints replied:
    “Behold the Man!”

Betrayed by Judas, and denied,
Scourges by the Romans – how immense
The sufferings of the Crucified!

Yet much more awful and intense
His sufferings before He died.
Drinking all He can now dispense
    Behold the Man!

This one is a roundel.
