Psalm 22 is unsurpassingly beautiful, so beautiful I try not to read it too much else it lose its specialness. It is the meatiest of Psalms, a foreshadowing of the suffering savior and much more.

You who fear the LORD, praise him!...For he did not despise or abhor the affliction of the afflicted.

Great consolation that God can look upon the ugly and not look away in horror.

Before him shall bow all who go down into the dust...

Was not Ash Wednesday's reading about those who would sit in ash? If we go down into the dust and sit in the ash then this prayer assures of our bowing before Him which enables our rising.
