Fragment of a Hymn (For Meditation)

To open the door
and set men free
from sin and death
the cross he bore.
Selfsame hands caused the blind to see,
as bled upon the wood so sore;
as walked the sea, the selfsame feet
were pierced, and broken was his heart--
so full of mercies ever sweet
to those who choose
the better part.
