Son of Man/Son of God

When You left heaven
You left so much behind-
Son of God.
All the glory, splendor,
holiness and perfect light;
One with the Father
all-powerful, all-knowing
Everywhere present-
Son of God.

You took to Yourself
humble circumstances, frail humanity,
rejection and scorn-
Son of Man.
Walking dusty earth,
surrendering Your will
to that of Your Father,
Living it out as You would one day
equip others to live-
Son of Man.

You sweat drops of blood,
facing a destiny
filled with more suffering
than anyone would ever know-
Son of Man
In Your humanity You cried out
and submitted once again,
Paying the price, saving, redeeming,
once for all.
Son of Man

You endured the cross and
separation from Your Father,
conquered death, and rose again-
Son of Man/Son of God.
Returning home, bearing scars
Forever changed,
for my sake-
Son of Man/Son of God
