    Christ, perjury-convicted,
    Clears us all,
    As, bound, he breaks the thrall
    Our guilt inflicted.
    He with lash-torn skin
    Heals all who ail,
    And, damned to cross and nail,
    He saves from sin.
    Christ, taunted here beneath,
    Has called us blest,
    Thorn-crowned to have us dressed
    In glory's wreath,
    Stripped bare to robe us new
    In white array . . .
    You died for us, Lord--may
    We live for you!
