In case you didn't know, the word E'en means even. The Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of Glory, was rejected, scorned, and disowned even by those He came to call. "He came unto his own, and his own received him not." (Jn.1:11)
In verse four the word invest has nothing to do with investing money. That's usually what we think of today when we see the word invest. In this context it actually means: to adorn: to dress, clothe, or cover somebody or something with a garment or other covering.
- Lord of glory, we adore Thee,
Christ of God, ascended high;
Heart and soul we bow before Thee,
Glorious now beyond the sky;
Thee we worship,
Thee we praise,
Excellent in all Thy ways.
Mighty King, with glory crowned,
Rightful Heir and Lord of all:
Once rejected, scorned, disowned,
E'en1 by those Thou cam'st to call:
Thee we honour,
Glorious now and evermore.
Lord of life, to death made subject,
Blesser, yet a curse once made;
Of Thy Father's heart the object,
Yet in depths of anguish laid:
Thee we gaze on,
Bearing here our sorrows all.
Royal robes shall soon invest2
Royal splendours crown Thy brow;
Christ of God, our souls confess Thee
King and Sovereign even now;
Thee we reverence,
Own Thee Lord and Christ alway.
