The Descent From the Cross

Is this the Face that thrills with awe
     Seraphs who veil their face above?
Is this the Face without a flaw,
     The Face that is the Face of Love?
Yea, this defaced, a lifeless clod,
     Hath all creation's love sufficed,
Hath satisfied the love of God,
     This Face the Face of Jesus Christ.
