It Is Written ...
It is written God came down to Earth
Conceived of the Spirit and by virgin birth;
He came to live and die like a man
And He likened Himself to an unblemished Lamb.
They crucified Him that terrible day;
Treacherous men had their treacherous way;
The Angels wept as He hung on the cross
Thinking His death an immeasureable loss.
Later that day they cut him down -
Upon His head a blood-drenched crown;
His wounds bearing witness to suffering and pain -
Yet it was for this reason He came.
After three days He rose again
Giving new hope to the sons of men;
He is the Way, the Truth and the Life -
The only key to eternal life.
Christ came to Earth to pay our debt;
All we need do is believe and accept
The truth of these words; repent of all sin
To be renewed and cleansed from within.
