more kingdom reversal

The greatest among you shall be your servant. Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.
Matthew 23:11-12

In the upside-down kingdom
of Christ our Lord
the world is re-ordered
by His holy Word
Children teach us faith
as we truly believe
servants are the leaders
giving to receive

Christ's kingdom reversal
reflects in all we do
abandoning our works
to get us through
God dies for us
so we can live forever
His life in us
as we win by surrender

Turning our thinking on its head
makes everything again right
and we yield -- don't resist
abandoning power by our might
exalted by slavery
empowered by trial and pain
we have joy in the Lord
and heaven to gain
