Amongst gainsayers,
Self-seekers, and those at enmity
With truth, He could
Be named the Amen.

While the world destroyed,
Sin damaged, Satan corroded,
This was the Man who
Devised noble things.
Before an earthly ruler
The Just One stood. Crowds 
Clamoured for injustice; He
Accomplished righteousness.

Three times Satan essayed
To sully that man by
Guile. Failing, he attempted
Violence. And failed again.

Amid a world of hatred,
Crucifying God's Man,
A few, attracted by Him,
Gathered around His cross.
