We Need a Revelation

“For the joy set before you”  
You endured the shame
Oh dear Lord please teach me  
That I can do the same
Hands and feet nailed to a cross  
You managed to set me free
Oh, how small my burdens are  
Compared to Your big tree!
In your anguish and your agony  
You did not complain...
Your mind was fixed, your sight was set  
On that you would obtain
From fulfilling your Father’s wishes  
And finishing your race
You went up to Heaven  
To prepare for me a place
And left with me a helper  
A special part of You
To empower, strengthen, and comfort me  
So I can get there too.
