51 Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord. 52 Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old.

     53 And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these parables, he departed thence. 54 And when he was come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works? 55 Is not this the carpenter’s son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas? 56 And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath this man all these things? 57 And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house. 58 And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.(KJV)

1. Stricken, smitten, and afflicted, 
See Him dying on the tree! 
‘Tis the Christ by man rejected; 
Yes, my soul, ’tis He! ’tis He! 
‘Tis the long-expected Prophet, 
David’s Son, yet David’s Lord; 
Proofs I see sufficient of it: 
‘Tis the true and faithful Word. 

2. 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. 

3. 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; 
‘Tis the WORD, the LORD’S ANOINTED, 
Son of Man and Son of God. 

4. Here we have a firm foundation; 
Here the refuge of the lost; 
Christ’s the Rock of our salvation, 
His 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.
