'Dostoyevsky Reads Hegel In Siberia And Bursts Into Tears' By Laszlo F. Foldenyi Translated from the Hungarian by Ottilie Mulzet

536 L.M. W. Gadsby
“He hath made him to be sin for us.” 2 Cor. 5. 14, 21
1 Behold a scene of matchless grace,
’Tis Jesus in the sinner’s place;
Heaven’s brightest Glory sunk in shame,
That rebels might adore his name.

2 Tremendous clouds of wrath and dread,
In vengeance burst upon his head;
Ten thousand horrors seize his soul,
And vengeful mountains on him roll.

3 He sighed; he groaned; he sweat; he cried;
Through awful floods he passed and died;
All penal wrath to Zion due,
Infinite justice on him threw.

4 He rose in triumph from the dead;
Justice declared the debt was paid;
Then Christ with kingly grandeur flew,
And took his throne in glory too.

5 Come, saints, with solemn pleasure trace
The boundless treasures of his grace;
He bore almighty wrath for you,
That you might all his glory view.
