Today I attended an 'Early good Friday' at Wells led by Melvyn Matthews. During this he said that "The cross essentially focuses in one event what has been going on all of the time in Jesus life and, I would add, in the life of God. God pours himself out in sacrificial love from the beginning."
The image picks up on this and the hymn verse:
"Come, see His hands and His feet, The scars that speak of sacrifice;
Hands that flung stars into space, to cruel nails surrendered."
