In Nazareth of no repute,
From root in barren ground, unknown,
There grew to Him, a tender shoot,
As humble Man came to His own,
A Rock but yet a stumbling stone.
The kings and rulers counsel take
Against the Lord, against His Christ;
Their bonds and cords they wish to break,
But He Whom they as bond slave priced
Would break death’s bonds by sacrifice.
A Man of sorrows men despised
Esteeming Him of little note,
For they in ignorance surmised
He by the hand of God was smote—
Words long before, Isaiah wrote.
The rocks are split, the day is night
The veil is torn by unseen hands
He, of no note to men of ‘might’
Upstages ruler’s wicked plans,
Events transpire as God commands.
And still today though verified
In gospel truth and hist’ry’s page
Most men ignore why Jesus died
From facts of God they disengage
As men have done in every age.
But note it well a day will come
When earth and heaven will proclaim
The glory of this Holy One
Who once as humble servant came—
The Nazarene as King will reign.
