The Descent from the Cross
Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830–1894)
 
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,        5
  Hath all creation’s love sufficed,
Hath satisfied the love of God,
  This Face the Face of Jesus Christ.
