Because he suffered

After Hebrews 2:5-18

Because he suffered,

he was crowned king,

the founder of earth, king,

the one who sanctifies, king,

the one given to us.


And so, when we suffer,

we see the king who

suffered as well,

who suffered for us,

who suffered so 

we could live.


What we suffer,

he has suffered.

He suffered first and 

died so we could live.

He knows who we are;

he knows what we suffer

because he suffered first.

Because He suffered, we can find comfort in His presence.
