The Son of Man must suffer many things …

Injustice, trial travesty
accusing him of blasphemy
because he claimed divinity:
his innocence was plain to see.

Insulted by the soldiers blind,
by passers-by of careless mind,
by leaders envious and unkind:
but soon his glory all will see.

Such isolation, awful rift:
for us the Son becomes bereft –
– incomprehensible – the gift,
and pain: my Substitute I see.
