Our Messiah Came

Full Text

1 Our Messiah came for all mankind,
To bring us back to God!
For we like sheep had gone astray,
We all the broad road trod.

2 It broke His heart to see us go
And perish in our sin;
So Jesus came from Heav’n to earth
Our souls from hell to win.

3 In Bethlehem our king was born,
And in a manger lay;
The prophet Micah did foretell:
His goings forth for aye.

4 His life was filled with doing good,
And teaching men of peace;
His holiness, His truth and love
Brought proud men to their knees.

5 The Jewish rulers hated Him,
And plotted to destroy
The heav’nly King whose life did bring
The way of peace and joy.

And when they’d scourged and beaten Him,
They hung Him on a tree;
With nails and spear His hands and side
Were pierced for you and me.

But death could not restrain our Lord,
For He is King of life!
And bursting from the darkened tomb,
Conquered Satan, sin and strife.

Dear Savior how can I give thanks
For giving me Your grace?
I’ll give my life, my love, my all,
Forever sing Your praise!
