Just once in all our human flood
Perfection took on flesh and blood
And left a Heavenly throne
He came into a dusty land
And clung unto a Hebrew band
To make their plight His own.
A precious, faithful lass His door
As once the prophet said before
Omitting sin’s seed sown.
And He held title to our pain
And sampled every mortal strain
And for our sin atoned.
Oh let the halls of worship ring
This Carpenter our God and King
And we no more alone.
Ascended, where from whence He came
Messiah then His hard-earned name
And all of Love’s Plan shown.

When I think upon you, Lord
Leave the rush of cark and care
Set my troubles clear aside
Resolute to find you there.
You will never disappoint
You address each hurting soul
Draw the heart to Gospel tales
Bring it back to vigour, whole.
Nothing but your Word brings life
Nothing but your touch brings joy
Nothing but your alchemy
Yields the gold from sin’s alloy.
