Becoming The Created


Mary begat Jesus
That Christmas day
Not ever knowing
The price he would pay

Imagine your baby
Whom you love so dear
Dying for others
Who'd never shed a tear

Unrecognizable he was
After they beat him so
As he went to the cross
Where none wanted to go

The thunder roared
The lightening flashed
As they humiliated my Lord
His body they bashed

Oh, so full of power
To come down that day
And kill them all
For treating him this way

All the Angels
At his command
To save his body
From the wrath of man

Can't you see
The reason he stayed
So full of love
For the price he paid

There has never been
And there will never be
Another like him
You'll ever see

Tell me another
Who loved you so
That he gave his life
So you may go

And live your life
Never mention his name
Not even a thanks
For all his pain

Someday soon
Your knee will bow
So why wait
When you can do it now

He offered you a gift
You can never repay
He gave his life
For your judgment day

So don't be one
That he casts aside
Says he knows you not
Be removed from my sight

In a world of pain
You decided to live
You wouldn't take his offer
This life he gives

It's not to late
Yet you never know
The day the door closes
On your soul

As long as you have breath
The offer still stands
Can't you feel the tug
Of his nail scared hands

It's the creator
Becoming the created
Just to return his love
So long he has waited

With a merciful heart
He waits to forgive
As he offers and extends
Abundant life to live

Call on your Lord
For I did sin
I'm tired of losing
I'm ready to win

Here is my heart
Do with it as you will
For I am ready Lord
Ready to begin to heal

Take me as I am
That's all I have to give
To offer you Lord
My life for you I'll live

"Heaven"—is what I cannot reach!
The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
