The God-man

The God-man bore upon His shoulders
The weight of the world
Our hideous sin
Our sickness
Our crippling disease

At this juncture in time
He laid aside His rights to the Divine

He took our place on the cross
The substitute for our sin
His death brought mercy to the unpardonable
To those lost in sin

His forgiveness extended to the uttermost
He brought victory to each of us
When He rose

Death did not have the final say
Three days later
Came Resurrection Day

Glory to Jesus the God-man
Fully human, fully divine
Because of Him we also rise

We identify with Him
Dead to sin
Alive to God
On Satan’s head we trod

All because of this Man
Who is also Almighty God
