God’s gracious intervention
In sending Christ to pay for sin
So we by faith could enter in
To such a great redemption.
How difficult to understand
The blessed incarnation,
That Son of God, now Son of Man
Was ever God the Father’s plan,
Effecting man’s salvation.
Our darkened minds to truth are blind
We’re ruled by fallen notions;
Such is the state of all mankind;
We’re all by Eden’s fruit assigned
To vanity’s promotion.
If left alone we’d self destruct,
By evil overtaken;
For wickedness, by stealth, corrupts
‘Till chaos everywhere erupts—
Thank God we’re not forsaken.
For there’s an answer to our plight,
There’s clarity provided;
Though we are nearing darkest night
The Word of God brings life and Light
When truthfully divided.
The gospel message will not fail
Though foolish men are scoffing—
If, of its hope they don’t avail
They’ll walk alone through death’s dark vale
With judgement in the offing.
God sent His Son to take our place—
Christ Jesus brings redemption,
A work of love, a work of grace—
One day we’ll see Him face to face—
What blessed comprehension!
