Hast thou no scar

1
Hast thou no scar?
No hidden scar on foot, or side, or hand?
I hear thee sung throughout the land,
I hear them hail thy shining star,
Hast thou no scar? no scar?
2
Hast thou no wound?
Yet I was wounded by the archers, spent,
Leaned Me against a tree; and rent
By ravening beasts ’round Me, I swooned:
Hast thou no wound? no wound?
3
No wound? no scar?
Yet, as the Master shall the servant be,
And pierced the feet that follow Me;
But whole? can he have followed far
Who has no wound nor scar?

I was reminded of this sweet hymn as I read that for Christ to make His home in my heart, and for Him to have a way in the church, that is to build it, the breaking of the outer man is both crucial and vital. Amen Lord gain what You desire.

I enjoyed singing this hymn and was reminded afresh that all things work together to conform us to the image of Christ (Rom. 8:28-29): "...Yet, as the Master shall the servant be..." Praise the Lord!
