142. Deep Were His Wounds, and Red

1 Deep were His wounds, and red,
On cruel Calvary,
As on the cross He bled
In bitter agony.
But they, whom sin has wounded sore
Find healing in the wounds He bore.

2 He suffered shame and scorn
And wretched, dire disgrace;
Forsaken and forlorn,
He hung there in our place.
But all who would from sin be free
Look to His cross for victory.

3 His life, His all, He gave
When He was crucified;
Our burdened souls to save,
What fearful death He died!
But each of us, though dead in sin
Through Christ eternal life may win.

Amen.
