Wouldn’t be willing to stop being
Human he became willing to stop
Being wholly of light approachable
To become human and die as a
Helpless creature died in that
Jewish rite so that its drenching
Blood could besprinkle in its
Deep cleansing.

Understand this?
 
Being human what can we do
But bow, and believe now, or
When glory leaves all he made
Transformed, or stricken?
