The Lord despised and rejected
Richard Crashaw (B.) (c. 1613–1649)
 
‘The Lord despised and rejected by His own people.’—LUKE IV. 28, 29.

SEE, O my kinsmen, what strange thing is this!
Christ in’s own country a great stranger is.
The thief which bled upon the cross with Thee
Was more ally’d in consanguinity.
