His Right–and Mine

by Helene S. Royster

The Son of Man, as Son of God,
was Lord of all the universe;
His legal right Equality with God!
He was adored by heaven’s hosts.

Supreme divine delight was His until
He looked to earth and there He saw man,
Captive of His enemy!
He, therefore, left it all that I might share
Celestial joys with Him eternally.

Of course, my “legal right” is not the same as His,
For it is rooted in Man’s Sin,
But I must likewise sever all my claim
To rulership, and die, if I would win
The prize: The Risen Life, God’s great high call,
And reign with Christ, triumphant over all.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.
