20*. "Stricken, Smitten and Afflicted,"

by T. Kelly
"Stricken, smitten and afflicted,"
See Him dying on the tree!
'Tis the Christ by man rejected!
Yes, my soul, 'tis He, 'tis He!
Mark the sacrifice appointed!
See who bears the awful load!
'Tis the Word, 'tis God's Anointed,
Son of Man and Son of God.
“Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.” (Isaiah 53:4)
“Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.” (1 Peter 2:24)
“He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.” (Isaiah 53:3)
“He came unto his own, and his own received him not.” (John 1:11)
“But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God.” (Hebrews 10:12)
“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” (John 1:14)
“The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying.” (Psalm 2:2)
“For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.” (Luke 19:10)
Here we have a firm foundation;
Here's the refuge of the lost;
Christ's the Rock of our salvation—
His the name of which we boast.
Lamb of God! for sinners wounded—
Sacrifice to cancel guilt,
None shall ever be confounded
Who on Thee their hope have built.
