Though perfect in his form: divine,
He veiled his glor’ous deity.
Emptied himself; to flesh confined:
In likeness of humanity,
He seized the status of a slave.
To death: the cross and grave.
By God exalted even now:
His noble name should be adored!
One day before him all will bow,
Confessing, “he is Lord.”
