… for the joy that was set before him, he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Oh what sorrow deeply cut, with whip and nails and thorn,
What agony of splintered wood, with bloody flesh and torn:
Yet now the heavens fill with song, glory and honour shown,
And joy unbounded fills the heart of Jesus on the throne.
