It was for love that HE came
from heaven and walked this earth
beside mere men, women and children
just like you and me.
It was for love that HE became
the royal sacrifice and bled and died
on a manmade cross between two
others just like you and me.
It is for love that HE will come
again to resurrect the dead in
Christ, from the grave and from
life, simple people like you and me.
It is for love and love alone
that makes you and me worthy
of HIS righteousness and paradise
as though we aren’t just you and me.
