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
