I Know a Man


I know a man who was despised by men,
I know a man who’s hidden from men’s eyes,
I know a man who’ll come to earth again,
A man of sorrows who is good and wise,

A man who’ll have the earth beneath His feet,
And every man and woman will bend knees
To God’s one Son, who made the Law complete,
The Son with whom the Father is well pleased.

He is the stone the builders have refused,
The one who has become the cornerstone;
He was rejected, ridiculed, abused
And soon He will return to claim His own.

He will return to rule as Judge and King:
Let earth rejoice! Let saints and angels sing!
