Consider Him

Consider Him

He left His throne to wear a crown of shame;

Forsaken Son when He our sin became.

In blackest night, He faced His death alone.

In brightest day, He rose and claimed His throne.

Refrain:

Consider Him who chose a lonely cross.

Consider Him and marvel at His loss.

Despising shame, Christ suffered in your place.

Consider Him, sufficient is His grace.

stanza 2

Though in the race of faith you seek relief,

Reset your gaze on Him who knows your grief.

Rejected by the ones He came to save,

Without complaint, His sacred life He gave.

stanza 3

All those who long to be like Jesus Christ

Must now partake in His self-sacrifice.

Take up your cross, endure the struggle now.

In time you’ll learn the cross leads to the crown.
