The Christ

Can one so limited as man
Complete a task so great?
Convince a world steeped in sin
That someone came to die for them?
 

Where could one start to tell about
 A God who took on flesh,
And leaving glory in its place
Came down to see men face to face?

What words would do to half describe
The trade He made that day,
In shedding glory without end
To wear a robe of flesh like men?

How should someone present the news
About the life He lived,
How He, when tempted and tried like men,
Lived victorious over sin?

Who would believe such a report?
Anyone could, I certainly did!
It wasn’t just the way He lived,
But how He died and rose again!

The truth of the whole matter is,
However it is told,
That Jesus Christ, God’s only Son
Prepared the way for everyone.

He lived a pure life without sin.
H
e was crucified and rose again
To give to us eternal life!
A
nd, if we believe, we’ll never die.
