Humbled and Crowned

He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.

– Micah 6:8

Humbled for a season
To win eternal victory
He calls out to each of us –
Walk humbly with Him

Condemned though innocent
In obedience to our Judge
He bids us protect the weak –
Stand proud in justice’ name

Mercilessly crucified
To save us from death in sin
He commands us love the unworthy –
Show mercy to our enemy

Crowned in royal splendour
In the princely place of honour
In grace He calls us each by name
Into shining glory, by His side

Thursday is Verse Day @FaithUnlocked – Psalm 12

Help, Lord, for no one is faithful any more;
those who are loyal have vanished from the human race.
Everyone lies to their neighbour;
they flatter with their lips
but harbour deception in their hearts.
May the Lord silence all flattering lips
and every boastful tongue –
those who say,
‘By our tongues we will prevail;
our own lips will defend us – who is lord over us?’
‘Because the poor are plundered and the needy groan,
I will now arise,’ says the Lord.
‘I will protect them from those who malign them.’
And the words of the Lord are flawless,
like silver purified in a crucible,
like gold refined seven times.
You, Lord, will keep the needy safe
and will protect us for ever from the wicked,
who freely strut about
when what is vile is honoured by the human race.
– Psalm 12
