THE SAVIOR FOR ALL IS BORN

God loves us without reserve
He sent His only Son
Jesus, enthroned from time eternal
Consented to come to earth
On a rescue mission for fallen mankind
Conceived by the Holy Spirit
Born of Mary, a virgin
Betrothed to Joseph from the Royal line
Of David

This fully human/fully divine infant
Cherished as their Son, Emmanuel
Trained by Mary in the Scriptures
Taught a trade, carpentry
By His Father, Joseph
Grew to maturity
And was baptized by John the Baptist
Beginning the mission given Him
Jesus fully reflected God’s character and love
In that He was One with the Father

Teaching the truth
Preaching of the Kingdom of God
Healing with compassion
Raising the dead to life
Forgiving sins
Showing us the Way
To eternal life with Him

Ultimately He laid down His life for us
Satisfying God’s wrath for sin
A sacrifice for us all
And rising again
Defeating Satan, sin, and death

As we celebrate Christmas
Come worship the infant Babe and Savior
