Jesus Understands

Jesus, Master, Son of God,
I'm glad your feet this planet trod;
That our humanity You wore
And mortal sufferings You bore
When on the Cross for me You died;
Then, like a garment cast aside,
Mortality You did discard,
As soldiers o'er the tomb stood guard;
In Immortality arrayed
You Victory over death displayed.

I'm glad to know You understand
How frail this flesh which You command.
My spirit longs to do Your Will,
Yet limitations plague me still.
But Praise Your Name, I need not fail,
Because Your Power which did prevail
Upon that bleak Golgotha Hill,
Is gloriously active still,
And You Who walked in human ways
Can use my life to bring God praise.

Honoria A. Groves
