“He shall be great” the angel said
Before His birth and drawing near;
Now risen, Victor from the dead,
He shall be great.

“Behold the Man” the Roman said -
Greatest since all this world began,
Proclaimed though His disciples fled -
Behold the Man!

“The Lord is near” the apostle said,
Encouraging through toil and fear;
They relish, who hold fast the Head,
The Lord is near.

“Lord Jesus, come” the bride says now
Engaged in His encomium;
His saints cry, as their spirits bow
“Lord Jesus, come”.
