Jesus So Lowly

Rembrandt, Christ on the Cross

by Harold Friedell

Jesus, so lowly, Child of the earth: Christen me wholly, Bring me new birth.
Jesus, so lonely, weary and sad; Teach me that only Love maketh glad.
Jesus, so broken, Silent and pale; Be this the token Love will not fail.
Jesus, victorious, mighty and free; Teach me how glorious death is to be.

You know, I don't think I've ever seen that Rembrandt painting. It's marvelous. Thanks for posting the picture and the music.

A beautiful painting.

This is wonderful music. We sing it a lot in our church. Thanks, Doug.
