From the heavens, Love looked down,
left His glorious robe and crown
to pave the way for all of humankind.
Jesus Christ, the sacrifice –
for one and all He gave His life,
all because God had us on His mind.
Mercy looked beyond my shame
and lovingly called out my name,
saying “I have come to give you life”.
Forgiveness came with open arms,
enveloped my soul with calm
and took away the inner doubts and strife.
Happiness evaded me,
until I came to Calvary
and looked upon the face of Him Who died.
Freedom broke the bars of sin
when I opened up to Him
and, in my soul, new tears of joy I cried.
By His grace, I walk this road,
thankful for the love He showed;
the peace He gives me, nothing can destroy.
Strength within, He gives to me
and words of life that set me free.
He’s my hope, the Centre of my joy!
