O Jesus, Jesus - the Man of Galilee,
The Man who came to make His people free:
The Man whose Person is of so high degree
They were repelled when He answered “I am He!",
Yet who was sold for such a paltry fee;
Despite His sorrows that Man refused to flee
But took the way which led Him to the tree;
The Man who always hears the sinner's plea;
The Man whose glory the universe will see.
In their response to the divine decree
All living things to Him will bow the knee:
Oh Jesus, Jesus - the Man who died for me.
Writing this sequence I began to feel that the verse was moving forward like waves. So this begins a wave of laises relating to names, offices and titles of the Lord Jesus.
