He did not come with troops, with flags unfurled

And burnished swords; He came to heal the lame,

The blind and poor; and to make known God’s Name;

And show God’s love. If Jewish lips were curled

Disdainfully, and jibes or stones were hurled,

He did not act as Judge. He was the Same:

Rightly could the Samaritans exclaim,

This is indeed the Saviour of the world!”

He came to Greek, Jew or Samaritan

In grace and vigour, as the Son of Man;

He showed, in shedding love and power abroad,

The dignity which marks the Son of God;

While heaven - before His public work begun

Parted to acclaim Him, God’s beloved Son.
