He…that thou…

“Dost thou understand me, sinful soul? He wrestled with justice, that thou mightest have rest; He wept and mourned, that thou mightest laugh and rejoice; 
He was betrayed, that thou mightest go free; was apprehended, that thou mightest escape; 
He was condemned, that thou mightest be justified; and was killed, that thou mightest live; 
He wore a crown of thorns, that thou mightest wear a crown of glory; and was nailed to the cross, 
with His arms wide open, to show with what freeness all His merits shall be bestowed on the coming soul; and how heartily He will receive it into His bosom?” – John Bunyan
