Handel George Frideric — 23. Air For Alto: He Was Despised lyrics

He was despised and rejected of men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with
Grief. (Isaiah 53:3)
He gave his back to the smiters, and His cheeks to them that plucked off
The hair: He hid not His face from shame and spitting. (Isaiah 50:6)
