Hymn/Song Information

Stricken smitten and afflicted




Stricken, smitten, and afflicted,
See Him dying on the tree!
íTis the Christ by man rejected;
Yes, my soul, ítis He, ítis He!
íTis the long expected prophet,
Davidís Son, yet Davidís Lord;
Proofs I see sufficient of it:
íTis a true and faithful Word.


Tell me, ye who hear Him groaning,
Was there ever grief like His?
Friends through fear
His cause disowning,
Foes insulting his distress:
Many hands were raised
to wound Him,
None would interpose to save;
But the deepest stroke
that pierced Him
Was the stroke that Justice gave.


Ye who think of sin but lightly,
Nor suppose the evil great,
Here may view its nature rightly,
Here its guilt may estimate.
Mark the Sacrifice appointed!
See Who bears the awful load!
íTis the Word, the Lordís Anointed,
Son of Man, and Son of God.


Here we have a firm foundation,
Here the refuge of the lost.
Christ the Rock of our salvation,
Christ the Name of which we boast.
Lamb of God for sinners wounded!
Sacrifice to cancel guilt!
None shall ever be confounded
Who on Him their hope have built.
