The Man of Flesh

In the garden when He wept

Great drops of blood

Agony sweat

He knows our sorrow

He knows our grief

Jesus Christ

The Compassionate Priest

In our own Gethsemane Prayer

He comes to us

He meets us there

In our sorrow

In our grief

Jesus Christ is the Compassionate Priest.


"While Jesus was here on earth, he offered up prayers and pleadings with a loud cry and tears, to the one who could rescue him from death. And God heard his prayers because of his deep reverence for God. Even though Jesus was God's Son, he learned obedience from the things he suffered. In this way, God qualified him as a perfect High Priest, and he became the source of eternal salvation for all those who obey him. And God designated him to be a High Priest in the order of Melchizedek."

(Hebrews 5: 7-10)


I have more questions than answers

I am just the storyteller


Love divine, all loves excelling

Joy of heaven to earth come down

Fix in us thy humble dwelling

All thy faithful mercies crown

Jesus, thou are all compassion

Pure unbounded love you are

Visit us with your salvation

Enter every trembling heart



As I kneel before your throne

I am yours

Yours alone

You chose the pathway to the cross

You surrendered yourself

You knew the cost

The easy path

You did not seek

You are the compassionate Priest

Remind me of the Man of Flesh

May I never forget

With loud cries, tears and pleadings

Always submitting, forever yielding

He gave Himself up

He Left the throne

The Man of flesh

Made me His own!
