This piece is a setting of the hymn "Smitten, Stricken, and Afflicted". The original text is by Thomas Kelly. The hymn tune is “O mein Jesu, ich muss sterben” which was published in Geistliche Volkslieder, Paderborn, in 1850.

The text paints a graphic image of Jesus’ crucifixion and the cost of mankind’s redemption. I have started this arrangement in darkly tragic octotonic mode and gradually moved toward the minor key of the hymntune.
