Such a mix of grief and joy for the punishment you bear.
Tears of sadness for the pain our sin has brought to you.

And the Sun there in the sky turns its face and looks away.
Blood has flowed to clear the world from every trace of sin.
Blood has flowed that we might live through faith in Christ our King.
