This is lovely. From the Sermons of Henry Smith (c. 1560-1591), known to his contemporaries as “the silver-tongued preacher”:

“As Christ ceased not to be a King because He was like a servant, nor to be a lion because he was like a lamb, nor to be God because He was made a man, nor to be a judge because He was judged; so a man doth not lose his honour by humility, but he shall be honoured for his humility.”
