Love Came to Earth..(Tonight's Re-post)

 

Love came to earth, a babe in the manger
Heaven’s perfection put on flesh and blood
In lowly birth and to His own a stranger
Love came to serve us; the Son of God

Love came to free us; despised and rejected
Forsaken by all in death’s hour of grief
His name is Jesus; Love came to save us
And offer salvation for our unbelief

Love spared no comfort; in blood-bought atonement
Perfect love came to become sin for us
Love never fails; prophecy’s fulfillment
Was laid in a manger and nailed to the cross

Love came to earth; and we hid our faces
Yet His perfect love over-came sin’s dark curse
By His stripes we are healed; as His love erases
The debt of our guilt; Love’s name is Jesus
