Christ Our Savior

Long ago was the prophecy told

            of a boy that would grace the earth;

it was writ of him that he would uphold

            the throne of David from birth.

He shall be called Wonderful Counselor,

            Mighty God, and Prince of Peace,

likewise our Father who lasts forever,

            whose reign will never cease.

Though he was born in just a trough

            as he descended from heaven, his home,

and though he left us, pierced on a cross,

            resurrected, he sits enthroned.

Humbly our King stepped down from above

            counting his glory no loss;

for Jesus came to show mercy and love

            to the outcast, to the lost.

Christ the Lord was righteous and just

            seeking not riches or fame;

he only sought to find men he could trust

            that would spread the gospel, his name.

Even as Jesus was hung on the cross,

            he asked his Father to forgive,

yet our souls cannot even fathom the cost

            of what Christ our Savior did.

Three days later he rose from the depths,

            saving us all from our sin;

never could we measure the breadth

            of the love he showers us in.

This boy who was born many years ago,

            by shepherd and wisemen adored,

is also the one by whom we will go

            as we fall at the feet of our Lord.
