The Conqueror

Hatred cast its eyes on Him—

scheming minds of threatened men,

armed with lies and aimed to kill.

(Anything for glory!)

They led Him like a thief to trial,

bound Him like a lamb for slaughter.

He bowed His head and bent His knee

but not to them.

The devil, man, and death together

mocked the weakness of their foe

and, sneering, struck the mortal blow

on God’s own Son.

But fool-proof plans of rebel men

played into God’s sovereign hands

for Jesus, dying, conquered sin

and then He rose.
