Forerunner (Hebrews 2:10-15)

The chief and mighty captain: Christ,
The author of this story,
He through His fitting sacrifice,
Brought many sons to glory.
His battle-plan and mighty work,
Was making Himself humble.
That God became a man by birth,
To make the prideful stumble.
To win the war, He bared Himself,
And stripped off all His grandeur.
He took on sins of darkest hell,
Accepting human standards.
Yes He became as one of us,
And loved to call us brothers,
Though He into our wants was thrust,
And in our needs He suffered.
Yet why did He this pain accept?
But to destroy the Devil.
That He as man might suffer death,
Then death o’erturn and level.
And that He might buy back my life,
And free my soul from slavery.
And now a son, the church His wife –
This plan was all to save me.
