lyrics

“Born as the Word, this Son of Man
A light has dawned, in a lightless land
He took on flesh, our very flesh”
A voice cries out, in the wilderness

He bore our shame, he bore the curse
His name denied, with thorns and thirst
The spirit worked, the spirit sighed
The wrath of God was satisfied

Refrain 1:
Al-le-lu-ia, Worthy is the Lamb

The angels witness to proclaim
Jesus has gone, with a captives train
Ascended high, a servants throne
A present kingdom, to adorn

The mystery of the risen Lord
A gospel to the ends of earth
The hearts of many will rejoice
Ten-thousands raise their thankful voice

Refrain 2:
To receive power, honor and glory, to receive praise now and forever
To receive strength, all wealth and wisdom
to receive praise now and forever.

O risen Christ, ascended Lord,
All praise to Thee let earth accord,
Who art, while endless ages run,
With Father and with Spirit one

I wrote this text/tune while we were living in London and serving at Camden Town Church. The text is a meditation on each phrase
of 1 Tim 3:16 and always struck me as being of the stuff of advent/xmas. Recently I heard that our church in London was folding
and recording this tune was a way of giving glory to the work that God has and will continue to do both in all the people that were
blessed to be apart of the church as well as the township of Camden. Many thanks to Naaman Wood for his work arranging the
music.
