His Humility

"The reproaches of them that reproached Thee are fallen upon Me... Reproach hath broken My heart; and I am full of heaviness" (Psalm 69:9,20).  "Hell and destruction are before the LORD" (Proverbs 15:11).  "All things that are written by the prophets concerning the Son of man shall be accomplished.  For He shall be... mocked, and spitefully entreated, and spitted on:  and they shall scourge Him, and put Him to death: and the third day He shall rise again" (Luke 18:31-33). 

Behold the heaviness that fell
On Christ that He might grant us favor.
Reproach from sinners and from hell
Were heaped upon our Lord and Savior. 

The Lamb of God from heaven came
To bear the burden of our sin
And thus remove destruction's claim
From those whom He would die to win. 

The things that prophets had foretold
Concerning Christ our Lord were done. 
His awful treatment would unfold
Until the battle had been won. 

We thank You, Lord, as now we see
Prophetic truth in its perfection
Fulfilled in Your humility
And in triumphant resurrection!
