1 Did Christ descend from majesty
To rescue you from sin?
For nails, did He exchange His crown
To make a worm His kin?
2 Has consolation from His hand
Relieved your grief and fear?
Or has His love all comforting
Renewed your heart’s good cheer?
3 Has He not knit you to His breast,
Made you His spotless bride?
Has not His grand humility
Vanquished your sinful pride?
4 Has He not bound us each to all?
In Him are we not one?
Shall we not have one heart, one mind—
And with all strife be done?
5 Let all conceit and envy die
Shamed by the looming Cross—
Count all self-interest wretchedness,
And vain ambitions, loss.
