Who Is This Man?


Who is this man?

Who is this man
Who would step down

From his throne?

 

A man who ruled

Heaven and Earth?

Time and space?

Named the stars above

And marked the ocean’s reach?

 

Who is this man

Who would come

To live among his people

As a common man?

As one of them?

 

Who is this man

Who holds the power of life

Who made the very universe?

Yet choose to live as they did

For thirty-three years?

 

Who is this man

Who learned to be human

By being human?

Who faced all the temptations

And heart ache that mankind faces?

 

Who is this man

Who sacrificed himself

To save his creation?

 

Who is this man

Who could have chosen

To condemn humanity

But choose to be slain instead?

 

Who is this man

Who had no guilt?

Who done no wrong?

Yet took upon himself

The guilt and wrongs of others?

 

Who stood in their stead

And took their judgment?

Accepted their consequences?

Suffered their eternal death?

 

Who is this man

Who would die for all

His creation to save them?

 

Or would die to save just one?

 

Not because he needed them

But because he loved them.

Who is this man?

 

Who is this man

Who rose three days after

Not by some other power

But by his own?

 

Who is this man who

Raised Twelve to be the first?

Who is this man who

Has shaken the very foundations of the world?

 

Who is this man!?

 

I’ll tell you who he is.

 

He is the beginning and the end.

Alpha and Omega

Son of the One True God.

He is fully man.

He is fully God.

He died in our place,

Took our punishment.

He rose again

With the keys of Hell.

To come again

At the time appointed

By his Father

 

He is Comforter

Protector

Friend

Brother

Love

Kindness

Defender

Healer

Hope

Justice

Mercy

Peace

Shield

Provider

Fortress

Life

 

Who is this man?

 

This is Jesus:

Lord of Lords,

King of Kings

To Him be all

The Praise and Glory

Forever and Ever
