Original Text: 
John Todhunter, Forest Songs and Other Poems (London: Kegan Paul, Trench and Co., 1881): 58. 11653.g.2 British Library
1On his cross still hangs the Saviour,
2    Bears our sins in dreadful sum,
3Eighteen centuries and three quarters,
4    Yet his kingdom is not come.
5"It is finished!" Was it finished
6    When thy path of pain was trod?
7Thou didst bear the sins of mortals,
8    Who shall bear the sins of God?
