The Lord has ascended above,Yet first He descended to earth,
Compelled by His infinite love
To enter this world by birth.
His name is the Lord Jesus ChristForever extolled, God the Son,
Who came down to be sacrificed
That souls, by His death, may be won.
Behold Him, the God of creation,Who gathers the wind in His fists,
Who calls us to make preparation
To meet Him who surely exists!
Though He is exalted and holy,He stoops in His great lovingkindness,
To ransom and lift up the lowly,
Removing their scales of blindness.
We see His salvation in Saul,Who cried out then, “WHO art Thou, Lord?”
That question pertains to us all,
Which many today have ignored.
The question Saul asked Him as wellMust surely pertain us too,
For thereby we’re rescued from hell:
“Lord, WHAT wilt Thou have me to do?”
The answer to us that is sentWhich we our Savior declare
Is: “Come unto Me!” and “Repent!”
There’s no other way to prepare.
Lord, thank You for answers You giveTo questions that come from the heart,
That we may eternally live
By grace which You freely impart.
We know WHO You are: Christ our Savior!We know WHAT to do to be saved:
Receiving You, Lord, we find favor
With heavenly answers we craved!
