Son of God
Jesus, standing still, looked at Pete. It was as much as he could do to look at Jesus, but somehow Pete forced himself to make eye contact.
Jesus, please don't come down here,
We'll cause You too much pain down here,
We'll smear Your lovely Name down here,
We'll crush you.
Child, I have to come down there,
I see you have such pain down there,
I want to change your name down there,
I love you.
Christ, though in the form of God, left His home and became a man;
Even more, He embraced pain and death just for you and me.
We simply are not worth the price
It's we who ought to die, not You,
We'll murder You.
You're worth so much to me, I'll gladly
Pay sin's awful price to set you
He who knew no sin became sin - yes, became vile sin,
And His life we tore away and He died for you and me.
Lord, I'm glad You came down here,
I praise Your lovely Name down here,
I bow before Your throne down here,
I love You.
Child My plans for you are great,
I'm going to take you home to stay,
I'm going to be forever with you
Christ will come again for us so that we might be with Him,
And forever be with Him as He is in love.
Even more, He CONQUERED pain and death just for you and me.
Pete, swamped by emotions he had never felt before, was sobbing now and could no longer look Jesus in the eye.
