Perfect Love

 

He could have sent a prophetgift

A servant, meek and low

To bear the curse of evil

And hatreds cruel blow

He could have sent a king of earth

A pauper or a priest

He had the power to place His worth

Within a mindless beast

He could have sent His angels

Legions to fill the sky

To spare Himself the anguish

Of watching His Son die

He could have, with one uttered word

Declared all man forgiven

He could have, from His visage stirred

The rocks to shout salvation

But He chose to put on flesh

The Sacred Son of Heaven

Became a servant unto men

In form, lowly and human

Upon a cross He gave Himself

A King and Royal Priest

And not one drop of love withheld

As death’s curse was released

He could have sent an army

To face the fiends of hell

But He loved us so completely

That He sent Himself .
