Through One who came here with no worldly charm ...


In the Pentland Hills

Through One who came here with no worldly charm,

Who was not known by fleshly lordliness,

But who has come to save and not to harm,

God has determined He is going to bless.

Yet this is One who charmed the heart of God

Because of the perfection of His ways:

God saw Him with the grace of Aaron’s rod

Growing in loveliness through desert days.


He was a root that grew out of dry ground,

A tender sapling burgeoning in strength,

Then rendering its fruit to God again;

He drew His moisture from above, yet found,

Though He would reach for men to any length,

He was despised and left alone of men.
