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.
