LOOK AT THAT FACE!
Spurgeon, THE APPROACHABLENESS OF JESUS
That man who has lived a life of service,
at last dies a felon's death!
Look upon his head girt with the crown of thorns!
Mark well his cheeks whence they have plucked off the
hair! See the spittle from those scornful mouths,
staining his marred countenance!
Mark the crimson rivers which are flowing from his back
where they have scourged him!
See his hands and his feet which are pierced with the
nails, and from which ensanguined rills are flowing!
Look at that face so full of anguish,
listen to his cry, "I thirst, I thirst"
and as you see him there expiring,
can you think that he will spurn the seeker?
