Meditation on the cross

Terrible stake of execution,
Blessed compass and signpost

Terrible thorn of the curse,
Blessed tree of life

Terrible wonder of angels,
Blessed routing of demons

Terrible burden of the servant,
Blessed announcement of the king

Terrible bitter draught,
Blessed wood that sweetens foul waters

Terrible nails and spear,
Blessed ark and olive branch

Terrible scandal of offense,
Blessed road to salvation

Terrible scorn and humiliation,
Blessed hope of victory

Terrible folly of men,
Blessed wisdom of God
