Tuesday's Trust - No Scar? ~Amy Carmichael

Tuesday's Trust

No Scar?

~Amy Carmichael

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, spent,

Leaned me against a tree to die; and rent

By ravening beasts that compassed me, I swooned:

Hast thou no wound?

No wound? No scar?

Yet, as the Master shall the servant be,

And pierc-ed are the feet that follow me;

But thine are whole: can he have followed far

Who has no wound nor scar?

~Amy Carmichael


"Can a mother forget the baby at her breast

and have no compassion on the child she has borne?

Though she may forget,

I will not forget you!

See, I have engraved you on the palms of My hands;

your walls are ever before Me."

~Psalm 49:15-16 NIV


"For to you it has been granted on behalf of Christ,

not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake."

~Philippians 1:29
