Because He valued Abel
God honoured him
By listening to the cry of his blood
From the ground.

He gave Joseph this accolade:
His coffin was carried,
Forty years,
By the myriads of the thousands of Israel.

Moses - faithful in all God’s house - God distinguished
As the only man
Whom He Himself buried.

Elisha’s grace and faith
Were accorded this distinction:
The dead man revived
When he touched Elisha’s bones.

In the sight of Jehovah
The death of His saints was precious.

But one Man deserved
A greater honour;
One Man required
A higher accolade;
One Man attracted
A greater distinguishment;
His moral worth
Ensured Him this distinction:
The Father’s glory raised Him from
Among the dead.
