That Is Why He Came...

" shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.” 

He saves us; that is why He came
Atonement's endless Being
God gave His Son whose precious name
Sends demon-darkness fleeing

He came; this of His own accord
Mercy, purposed and fervent
He, King of kings and Lord of lords
Came to us as love’s servant

He came; Perfection put on flesh
Hope’s Promise for all nations
Immortal God; man’s righteousness
And blood-purchased salvation

He came; left Heaven’s throne for us
Sin’s curse broken forever
He came, God’s only son, Jesus
Deliverer and Saviour

He came so when we leave this place
Death will not be our sanction
He came to save; His love and grace
Will be our Resurrection
