Man Like Him

“He was made like his brothers

                in every way.”

With awe and joy I read.

My humble yet exalted priest 

                Who, every day,

Hears me as I plead.


Then thought of “Lamb slain

                before earth’s foundation,”

Brings pause over Holy Writ.

Another shining facet

                Of salvation

Warms this heart further yet.


“Not only was the Lord

                Made like me

Except without sin,” I ponder.

“We were first formed as the man

                He would be.”

A wonder upon a wonder!


So true God-Man, seated

                at the right,      

with love that will never dim,

Meets with pity believers

                He became like,

So they can be man like Him.
