Lent 23: Thursday of Third Week

Son of David, immortal king, why –
Shoot from stump of Jesse, how –
Anointed one, long-promised ruler –

Where is victory? Where your crown?

Losing life to save it, why –
Eyes bent towards the grave, what for –
Die that life may glorious reign –

Our minds cannot contain
