The Lord, the Son of David,
    named Son by God's decree,
Whose excellence of bearing
    is like the cedar tree,
As One who was prepared to
   fulfil all righteousness
Was carried by the Spirit
  into the wilderness.

The Christ, the Son of God, in
   whom God had found delight,
Prepared to be a servant,
   despite His sovereign right,
In holiness which only
   His manhood could express
Was driven by the Spirit
   into the wilderness.

Jesus, the Son of man, come
   in condescending love,
As He on whom the Spirit
   descended as a dove,
In manhood in perfection,
   as heaven and saints confess,
Was led by the same Spirit
   within the wilderness.
