The Nazarene

And he went and lived in a city called Nazareth, so that what was spoken by the prophets might be fulfilled, that he would be called a Nazarene.
Matthew 2:23

He was despised
He was rejected
He was hated
     by those He came to save
          Jesus the Nazarene

He was the Branch
out of Jesse
sprung up to lead
     those who cut Him off
          Jesus the Nazarene

He lived in Galilee
town of Nazareth
a place maligned
     no one expected good from
          Jesus the Nazarene

But out of Nazareth
came the Messiah
the Son of God
     Who died and rose again our Savior
          Jesus the Nazarene

And I love Him
though still despised
yet my Great Savior
     Conqueror of death and the grave
          Jesus the Nazarene
