He came with humility
to serve; not to be served;
He came to prepare for us a place
a home where His father and eternity abides.
Wherever He went, whatever He did
people came from all around
from towns and villages to the mountainsides
to hear His teaching and wisdom found.
He came in love, He came with grace;
He chose a donkey, not a chariot or steed,
the Father’s glory shone about His face.
He was not sent to impress, or proceed
a following of men with clout or fame,
but with the twelve chosen walking beside
called Disciples, and with Him they came
to learn the ways of the One sent out
who carried our sin and carried our shame.
