The Glorious Servant

The Glorious Servant
Coming to serve and save.
He is His Lord’s own Son,
The One He selflessly gave.
With every obedient task
He is fulfilling God’s plan
To redeem the remnant,
To reconcile man.
He relies on His God
To be His constant help.
He has not come
To serve Himself.
From the virgin womb
His name was known.
He came to seek and save the lost,
And make them His own.
He is hidden in the shadow
Of His Father’s hand,
Where our names are engraved,
In the palms that help us stand.
He is a Light to the Gentiles
And all who believe.
He frees prisoners and captives,
And darkness He does relieve.
This Holy One who is Faithful
Is glorious in His Father’s eyes.
To choose this Mighty Redeemer
Makes one wise.
