Tell me, ye who hear Him groaning:
Was there ever grief like His?
Friends, through fear, His cause disowning,
Foes insulting His distress.
Many hands were raised to wound Him
None would interpose to save;
But the deepest stroke that pierced Him
Was the stroke that justice gave.
Thomas Kelly, 1804
He was handed over to die because of our sins, and he was raised to life to make us right with God.
A very Good Friday to all.Romans 4:25, New Living Translation
