No Scar?

Source unknown

Hast thou no scar?No hidden scar on foot, or side, or hand?I hear thee sung as mighty in the land,I hear them hail thy bright ascendant star,Hast thou no scar?

Hast thou no wound?Yet I was wounded by the archers, spend,Leaned Me against a tree to die; and rentBy ravening beasts that compassed Me, I swooned:Hast thou no wound?

No wound, no scar?Yet, as the Master shall the servant be,And, pierced are the feet that follow Me;But thine are whole: can he have followed farWho has no wounds nor scar?
