An aching heart, longing for Love
Swollen tears flood sorrowful eyes
Could not this cup of thirst pass by?
Shattered body of an unwavering Spirit
Giving up the last breath for mankind.
Wounded head, beatless heart
Fallen body, transfigured by hate.
But for a moment all seems lost
Love freely given, now takes on our pain.
Precious Lord, You removed our stains
Now dripping on your beaten brow
So much burden for the King of kings.
You burst forth, victorious over sin.
Only Love stands now, unblemished and pure.
Love enough for the whole world.
