The Face of Jesus

The face of Jesus:
    marred more than any man--
    spit upon,
    slapped,
    thorn-pierced,
    bloodied,
    sweating,
    the beard plucked,
    twisted in pain--
For my salvation.
A glorious face, now.
Let its light shine on me, O Light of Life.
Let Your radiance fall on me, Sun and Savior,
Lighten my darkness.
Then grant me this by Your grace:
That I, in turn, may give
"The light of the knowledge of the glory of God" (2 Cor 4:6 AV)
As I see it in the face of Jesus Christ.
--Elisabeth Elliot, A Lamp for My Feet
