> The hymn on the link is "Kefneth Kmo Zabnin" by Mor Ephrem and it is a a hymn on his own feelings on appetite. This hymn does not refer to the nature of Jesus Christ, but instead refers to the human nature (as that of Mor Aphrem) as ours. Later part of the hymn shows that it is referring to the author and not Jesus. The human nature is afflicted with hunger drive and Mor Ephrem is trying to fight the bodily needs.
