|Thou hast known My reproach, and My shame, and My dishonor: Mine adversaries are all before Thee. They gave Me also gall for My meat; and in My thirst they gave Me vinegar to drink. (Psa. 69:19,21)
|The people stood beholding. And the rulers also with them derided Him, saying, He saved others; let Him save Himself, if He be Christ, the chosen of God. And the soldiers also mocked Him, coming to Him, and offering Him vinegar. (Luke 23:35‑36)
|Gazing on the Lord in glory,
While our hearts in worship bow,
There we read the wondrous story
Of the cross — its shame and woe.
|Gazing on it we adore Thee,
Blessed, precious, holy Lord;
Thou, the Lamb, alone art worthy:
This be earth’s and heaven’s accord.
