1108. Behold God's own exalted Son

1 Behold God's own exalted Son,
Adored by seraphs bright,
A servant now to men become,
With men he takes delight.

2 Admiring angels wondering view
The condescending love
Of him to whom their homage due
Was offered once above.

3 Because he loves, he condescends
To wash his brethren's feet;
And leaves example to his friends
Of lowliness complete.

4 Who would reject his offered grace?
Refuse to bow the knee?
Disdain to take the humble place,
Where he has deigned to be?

5 Let all who would be like their Lord,
Accepted in his sight,
Not only hear, but do his word;
In doing there's delight.
