Down to Go Up

Jesus stepped down
     from His throne in Heaven;
I must step down
     from the throne in my own
          heart and mind.

Jesus got down
     on His knees for me;
I must get down
     on my knees for others
          for all mankind.

Jesus laid down
     His life for me;
I must lay down
     my life like Him,
          to be so inclined.

Jesus rose again
     proof of the price paid;
I must be born again, to
     go down to go up in Him,
          a new humankind.

Philippians 2:5-11
