God watched in His glorious heaven,
But man failed to see from earths' side,
That Jesus was bound by His choices,
Not just by the ropes was He tied.
He bound Himself in obedience
To the Father in heaven above.
Shackled by chains of His making,
Jesus chose to be bound by love.
Man meant to harm Jesus, silence the truth,
But God turned it completely around.
It is good that He died in place of all men.
His bondage meant love was unbound!
