Good News

On a night, crystal clear
Many centuries ago
Our Savior on this earth appeared
Our sins to overthrow.

Deliverance and mercy great
He carried in His hands.
The universe did all await
The Father’s firm command.

A helpless little baby—
Who could have ever known
That the child would one day be
Seated on His heavenly throne?

The Child of God, the Son of man
What wonderment is this?
Our Father’s perfect, sovereign plan
With everything to risk.

With heaven and creation
Hanging on the line
He sent His Word to save the nation
In the fullness of His time

Why would a sovereign, holy God
Do this thing for me?
To prove His mercy and His love
For all the world to see.
