He came into this world
Over 2000 years ago
To seek and to save all
Who are lost, unloved, lonely.
While He was here, fulfilling predestination
He healed all who believed
And they were set free of sin
Blindness, lameness, death and disease.
We crucified Him, He died, but He
Rose again to reign in the Heavens
For all eternity and how do we repay
The debt of love He freely gave
To all who believe and accept
His enduring, yet unearned mercy and grace?
By loving, unconditionally, whoever we meet
Honoring what He has done, is doing right now
Positioned, ready to receive all that eye has not seen
Nor ear heard what He has for us,
Unabashedly, proclaiming, “Jesus Christ is Lord,”
To all who will receive and accept
Our Father’s good and perfect gift, His son.
