WHO is this that comes from far,

Clad in garments dipp'd in blood?

Strong, triumphant traveler,

Is he man or is he God?

"I that speak in righteousness,

Son of God and man I am;

Mighty to redeem your race,

Jesus is your Saviour's name."

Wherefore are thy garments red,

Dyed as in a crimson sea?

They that in a winevat tread,

Are not stained so much as thee.

"I, the Father's favorite Son,

Have the dreadful wine press trod;

Borne the vengeful wrath alone,

All the fiercest wrath of God."
