If Any Person

 

if any person had a

higher claim to rebel

than did my Lord Jesus

I know not who they are

Who, alone of all, was God

 

Who, though

 

tried

judged

condemned,

 

stood silent

 

Who, though

 

legions of angels at His call

powerful in and of Himself

guiltless as none other ever was,

 

stood silent

 

Who, though

 

perfect

righteous

incorruptible,

 

stood silent

 

Who, though

 

alone of all who ever lived

could justly and without fault

rebel, claim His own autonomy,

 

stood silent

 

and died!

 

that we, His creation

His opposite in every way

could stand before His God

 

and live

 

and lives!

 

that we, His creation

the purchase of His blood

could live with Him

 

forever
