From the highest heavens
Giving up what you were given,
The creator of all things become small.
On a quiet, dark night
You came to be the light
And the way, truth, life for us all.
From unimaginable glory
You came to us to finish the story.
From your first breath, you’d see death put to death,
(And paid the price to set us free)
You humbled yourself to rescue me.
As was long foretold,
You stole into this fallen world
Not in splendour, but a stable cold and dim.
Lying in a bed of straw
Hidden by an open door,
So whoever bows the knee, can enter in.
Though you knew the cost,
To redeem the lost,
Knowing what you came to do.
You obeyed your Father’s will,
And though we were sinners still,
We now have life in you.
