THE HUMBLEST MAN

(A Villanelle)

Unmarked by human sins or flaws
The Saviour did the Father's will,
The humblest Man that ever was.

Within His heart He had God's laws,
Which He delighted to fulfil,
Unmarked by human sins or flaws.

Men would not have this Man because
Despite temptation He was still
The humblest Man that ever was.

God did not love Him without cause
But chose the Man men wished to kill
Unmarked by human sins or flaws.

He did not wish for man's applause
But loved the part He had to fill,
The humblest Man that ever was.

The beauty of His nature draws
Our hearts to honour with a thrill,
Unmarked by human sins or flaws,
The humblest Man that ever was.
