Lifeguard of Humanity

By David De Jong

He held His post that fateful day
Protector of lives, come what may
Positioned high where all could see
Watchers mocked His identity
Ridiculed in humility
This lifeguard of humanity

He held His post that fateful day
Where He clearly seen all that stray
He could not sit, He could not stand
Securing life with each pierced hand
His love held high upon a tree
This lifeguard of humanity

He held His post that fateful day
A mighty king, born in the hay
He gave His life as lifeguards do
He paid it all, to see it through
His blood was shed for you, for me
This lifeguard of humanity

He held His post that fateful day
I bow my head, in reverence pray
I break the bread, I drink the wine
To remember; His love Devine
Jesus a name so dear to me
This lifeguard of humanity
