Advent, Week Three

by | Dec 17, 2012 | News

Prepared for Advent reading on Week three at Exodus Church

 

Suffering

So blind with pride the world refused to see

The savior God appointed for our race.

Instead of pomp, He came a friend of grief,

Despised, as one from whom men hide their face.

We crowned and robed our king in mockery

And marred His form with punishment undue

We then enthroned our savior on a tree

Though He was spotless, without guilt–Who knew?

When He convicted all men for their sin,

The judge of earth condemned Himself to death.

Then with His blood, He purchased sinful men

And gave forgiveness with His dying breath.

So seek the cross where Christ has borne death’s sting

Look up, O sinners, and behold your King!
