He Sent His Son

Print Share
    How could the Father tell the world
    of love and tenderness?
    He sent his Son, a newborn babe,
    with peace and holiness.
    How could the Father show the world
    the pathway we should go?
    He sent his Son to walk with men
    on earth, that we may know.
    How could the Father tell the world
    of sacrifice, of death?
    He sent his Son to die for us
    and rise with living breath.
    What does the Father ask of us?
    What do the scriptures say?
    Have faith, have hope, live like his Son,
    help others on their way.
    What does he ask?
    Live like his Son.
