Our sins . . .
forged the nails that fastened Him to the tree,
planted the thorns that pierced His brow, and
sharpened the spear that was thrust into His heart!
O what an evil must sin be–to bring the Son of God into such a state of suffering and humiliation!
O what love must the love of Jesus be–that induced Him to take our place, and suffer and die in our stead!
