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.
