I. Watts


BEHOLD the Man! How glorious He!

Before His foes He stands unawed,

And without wrong or blasphemy,

He claims equality with God.


Behold the Man! by all condemned,

Assaulted by a host of foes;

His person and His claims condemned,

A Man of sufferings and of woes.


Behold the Man! He stands alone,

His foes are ready to devour;

Not one of all His friends will own

Their Master in His trying hour.


Behold the Man! though scorned below,

He bears the greatest name above;

The angels at His footstool bow,

And all His royal claims approve.
