A weird tune befitting a a weird metre (8,8,6D 4,3,3,4,8?). There are two more verses of this if you want to have a go.
How deep was that which Christ sustained
When in his soul and body pained,
He sat and wept and roared;
From many wounds a second flood
Springs forth which drowns the world in blood.
By which we are assured,
For he died
As our folly
Our offence there ceases wholly.
