He preached the gospel of purest love.
    He was misunderstood.

He preached the gospel of sweetest devotion.
    He was misunderstood.

He preached the gospel of quickest surrender.
    He was misunderstood.

He preached the gospel of slowest repentance.
    He was misunderstood.
            YES,
        This time
    He was misunderstood
Far beyond the power of his receptivity.
He became the worst victim
    Of the world’s wild derision.
