Long, brutal day of mockery, beating, and cruel cross,

Crown of thorns, nails driven into his hands and feet,

How to bear the terrifying darkness of our Master’s death?

I was not ready, nor could I fathom despair so thick, 

Surely it will choke out my very life. 

I ask you, Where go we from here?

But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was 
bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace 
was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. 
Isaiah 53:5
