The Son of God

 

The Son of God came down to earth
In flesh and bones and blood,
And now his Spirit lives in us
To show us all his love.

He struggled to survive this world
Of hunger, thirst, and cold,
And now his Spirit lives in us
To make us strong and bold.

He came to set the world on fire
With faith, and hope, and care,
And now his Spirit lives in us
To comfort, and to share.

He drained the dregs from sorrow’s cup
Of anguish, pain, and tears,
And now his Spirit lives in us
To help us face our fears.

Our Saviour suffered life and death,
Humble, poor, roughshod;
And now his Spirit lives in us
To guide us back to God.
