He Came in Love
by Jimmy Owens
Pure and holy Son of God, taking on the form of Man;
Left the glory of His Throne, came to bring salvation’s plan.
Righteous Father, Holy One, looking down on us in Love;
Gave to us His only Son, sent with blessings from above.
But we took Him and we nailed Him to a Cross made of wood,
And we raised it high and dropped it in the ground where it stood;
And the blood that flowed to the earth below
Brought forgiveness for the world that had treated him so.
‘Peace on earth, good will to man,’ at his birth the angels sang,
Love and mercy from the throne, through the earth his message rang.
He came in love to bring us light in our darkness,
He came in peace to bring release from our pain;
He came with joy to bring us rest in our weariness,
He came in love to bring us beauty again.
