You knew before the foundations of earth
That you’d have to die for man kind
Yet you took upon you this vessel of flesh
To die for a worm such as I

Although the knowledge of strife and pain
You would have to endure on the way
You came to your fate regardless of self
For the sinner your life you did lay

Despite your destiny you chose to leave
Your heavenly home and your throne
You left behind your royal robes
To die on the cross all alone

Your nail scarred hands and side remain
As evidence of what you went through
Let me focus my eyes and thoughts on them
And to daily bring glory to You!

Given to me by the Lord
