The Son has every right to boast:
In Him all might is vested.
In Him is light and life composed,
Who even dying bested.
Yet did He cloak Himself in opulence?
But no, He took upon fleshly substance.
The mighty God laid glory by,
To save the men who failed Him.
By shame and blood to sanctify,
Forgave those who assailed Him.
He would not seek out glory — though His due,
So every Christian must be humble, too.
The guidance of the Spirit,
for we are made by selflessness,
First sensitive to hear it.
With hearts made pliable to hear His voice,
May we exhibit His love, peace, and joy.
This too will build our unity,
As Christians and as brothers.
With views held in humility,
Considering each other.
To other Christians lovingly give place,
That we may show the world our Savior’s face.
