Son of God

Written by: Grace EunSong Lee

One angel sent
One promise made
May all this pass
As you have said.

A voice echoes
Prepare the way
Repent, repent
Heaven is near.

O happy day
Word becomes flesh
And angels sing
A song of hope.

Mother and Child
A holy night
She rocks her lord
In loving arms.

Sawdust flying
Carpenter's boy
Does he yet know
His foretold life?

Then he is twelve
Worried parents
Where have you been?
My father's house.

And now he knows
It's in his eyes
The only man
That knows his death.

The blind man sees
The deaf man hears
O praise the lord
Many believe.

Crows are thinning
Masks are lifting
Abandon now
Or stay, be saved.

Wolf among sheep
One amongst twelve
Silver and gold
Exchanged for life.

Plots, betrayals
One kiss of death
A fallen ear
Captured, at last.

Take the coins back
Thrown on the floor
Agonized soul
The price of guilt.

I know him not
I know him not
I know him not
A rooster crows.

Whips burn on skin
Blood an water
Innocent man
Nailed to a tree.

A crown of thorns
Digs into flesh
Painted in blood
"The Son of God."

Tears and laughter
One humbled man
And before him,
A world of sin.

The world goes black
Forsaken son
A curtain rips
Needed no more.

Then it's over
The deed is done
Body hangs limp
The blood has dried.

Yet there is more
On the third day
His grave is bare
Hell has freed him.

A love so great
A man so pure
That even death
Could bind him not.

So praise the Lord
Follow his light
Truly he is
The Son of God.
