… 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.

Hebrews 12:2

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.
