“Lift high the lamp, and make God’s glory known!”
Was preached upon the mount by Christ the Lord,
The Flaming Word enfleshed with blood and bone,
Whose teaching some embraced and some ignored.
In Him, Consuming Fire burned bright and clear.
As Love, He healed the sick, set free the bound;
As Light, He opened eyes and challenged fear;
As Shepherd, sought lost sheep till they were found.
“Come follow Me,” He called, then Jesus knelt
As if a slave, to wash disciples’ feet.
But on religious pride He left a welt,
And felt the scourge of brokers in deceit.
’Midst priestly shame and Pontius Pilate’s loss,
Christ’s heart of passion flamed upon the Cross.
