1. He left behind His own heavenly throne,
On earth was greeted with ridicule, scorn;
All this to save us from sin and from loss,
Willing to suffer the death of the cross.
The shepherd lays his life down for the flock of his own keeping,
For him it is no burden, and his service is unceasing:
He gives himself for Christ: love is its own reward;
For living, or for dying, it is gain to serve the Lord.
2. Behold the King, in His pure, selfless love;
How it inspires us, and lifts us above.
To bring us back is His only employ;
He bore our sorrows, to give us full joy.
3. Not unto us, but to Him glory be.
Rights, reputation: we think not of these;
Serving and caring: we grow as we give;
Leading to Jesus, and His selfless love.
