He Did Not

In honour, remembrance, and celebration of my Lord as we arrive at Easter.

He did not

When I came to this world, I left behind
My Father, our Glory, and all that was mine
I did not arrive as people expected
I did not appear as they suspected

In a stable destiny was born
Within a year multiples would mourn
‘A Messiah to replace the King one day
Allow I not, the sons of woman I’ll slay’

As the years passed by I grew
Ears didn’t hear, hearts neither knew
That in these rags Divinity stood
Resembling a beggar of no worldly good

In this world I did not attract
The outcasts I did not attack
To the influential I did not change
To the religious a heretic I ranged

If I were clothed in riches, would they accept
If I spoke words of eloquence no snares of reject
I did not come to confirm to their means
My reason for living was to die it seems

There was One who was pleased with me
In this human body He created me to be
A man unique and of His own form
To the Father I was Perfect
To this world I did not conform
