Who Is It That Comes From Far


Who is it that comes from far,
Clad in garments dipped 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 wine-vat tread
Are not stained so much as thee.

I, the Father’s favorite Son,
Have the dreadful winepress trod;
Borne the vengeful wrath alone
All the fiercest wrath of God.
