Hero of heroes

He stepped down from His throne
     to sit upon the rocky ground
With us.
He set aside His Heavenly power
     to show dependence on God
For us.
He took all of the sin of the world
     upon His beaten and bloody back
From us.
He died the first and second deaths
     to put His hard won righteousness
In us.
Like all good heroes do
     Jesus gave His life
          for the sake of others,
He bent down so low to
     lift us up to new life
          to His very last breath.
A Hero of heroes
     was He, is He,
          and will forever be.

John 3:16
