STRICKEN SMITTEN AND AFFLICTED

                Em                 D                              C      C/B     Em
Stricken, smitten, and afflicted, see him dying on the tree!
             Em                     D                           C            C/B       Em
'Tis the Christ by man rejected; yes, my soul, 'tis he, 'tis he!
D/F#     G                       D                          Em                        Bm
'Tis the long-expected Prophet, David's Son, yet David's Lord;
          Em                            D                         C             D          Em
by his Son God now has spoken: 'tis the true and faithful Word.


              Em                           D                                 C     C/B        Em
Tell me, ye who hear him groaning, was there ever grief like his?
                      Em                       D                        C             C/B      Em
Friends thro' fear his cause disowning, foes insulting his distress;
D/F#     G                                 D                                         Em                 Bm
many hands were raised to wound him, none would interpose to save;
               Em                            D                                   C                 D           Em
but the deepest stroke that pierced him was the stroke that Justice gave.


               Em                     D                   C                C/B    Em
Ye who think of sin but lightly nor suppose the evil great
                 Em                      D                         C            C/B      Em
here may view its nature rightly, here its guilt may estimate.
D/F#        G                 D                             Em                       Bm
Mark the sacrifice appointed, see who bears the awful load;
              Em                         D                           C             D           Em
'tis the Word, the Lord's Anointed, Son of Man and Son of God.


               Em                        D                            C       C/B      Em
Here we have a firm foundation, here the refuge of the lost;
                    Em                     D                        C              C/B           Em
Christ's the Rock of our salvation, his the name of which we boast.
D/F#       G                           D                      Em                    Bm
Lamb of God, for sinners wounded, sacrifice to cancel guilt!
                   Em                D                            C               D                Em
None shall ever be confounded who on him their hope have built.
