Veiled in finite flesh, mercy walks the earth;
Grace He brings, speaking of heaven;
He embodies His Father, for all He's worth;
He is God's Word, purified times seven;
He knows who He is and His destiny,
Yet He lived the servant's life;
Disrobed to wash His men's feet;
The water foretells a coming sacrifice.
Blood and broken flesh on dried and dirty wood,
The crowd below is seething;
This dying horror is God's greatest good,
The profane and holy are meeting.
The Mediator writhes, in pain as well as prayer;
He speaks joy in our behalf;
Shame done here shames the god of the air,
The Son is subject to God's wrath.
Angels release Him from His tomb,
Death cannot hold the Prince of mirth;
God's glory released from earth's womb,
He has purchased our second birth;
He comes to His men to show His wounds,
And breathes His Spirit upon them;
Releasing them from their spiritual tombs,
He has made them borne again.

"...spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified."--John 7:39b
"Jesus spoke these words, lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said: 'Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may glorify You, as You have given Him authority over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as You have given Him. And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent. I have glorified You on the earth. I have finished the work which You have given Me to do. And now, O Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was.'"--John 17:1-5
"For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily;"--Colossians 2:9
