Ephesians 5: 19; Colossians 3: 16
Verse 1: From Your Father’s throne, took the form of man, humbled to Your death, You fulfilled Your Father’s plan. Lord, what made You come down? Here was so much pain. Sin was all around.
Verse 2: When You taught the twelve, when You faced the crowds, some would lose their faith, even when they saw Your power. Lord, some drove You to tears. Was that from their doubts? Was it from their fears?
Verse 3: When Your head was crowned, when Your face was struck, when Your hands were nailed, when Your cross was lifted up, Lord, did You see their rage? Did you see their pride? Did you see their hate?
Chorus: Or did You see them one day needing grace, hungry for Your love, and longing to be saved? Did You see Your church where one day I would be? A world that needed You? What did You see?
