Glory not shame

His death that should have brought disgrace and shame,
has brought such honour, glory to his name.
His depth of pain and anguish was far more
than those who for their own crimes suffering bore.
What we had earned – God’s righteous judgement just,
he fully took, to save all those who trust.

And when they choose to hurt, oppress, and kill
those Christians who don’t hate or do them ill,
it will not bring the victims lasting shame,
but glory, honour to their Saviour’s name –
whose cause and mercy cannot be denied,
whose justice fair to all will be applied.
