Seething bowels, crowning glory

He chose to be mistreated along with the people of God rather than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin.He regarded disgrace for the sake of Christ as of greater value than the treasures of Egypt, because he was looking ahead to his reward.
Hebrews 11:25-26

When bowels rumble
And veins split
When blood is bad
And skin irritates
When it stinks of sickness
May I look ahead to you
To your prize above

When tears turn to drink
And commotion, bread
Let me remember you
Your reward is greater
Than my meat on earth
I look forward to your crown
