In the beginning was The Word
And The Word came down to men.
Clothed in a body...
God prepared to die for sin.
Full of Grace and Truth,
He walked upon this sod.
He was very much a man
Yet the full measure of God.
He spoke about the Kingdom
He had come to represent.
He pointed to the prophesies
To prove He had been sent.
Some accepted what He preached...
Supportive of His claim.
Others laughed and mocked Him...
Believed Him quite insane.
But Jesus was The Word
Come down to earth.
He spoke the living Word
To bring about His very birth.
As strange as it may seem,
His own death He prophesied.
To give sinful man eternal life,
He let Himself be crucified.
Man could never take His life.
He so humbly laid it down.
But He raised it up just as He said.
Death could not hold Him bound!
You see, The Word had spoken...
Spoken that He would survive.
Now, back at the Throne of God,
The Word is very much alive!!
Jesus was The Word
Come down to earth.
God came in the flesh
To offer all of us new birth.
This was and is the greatest news
This world has ever heard.
If we want to reach the Father...
We'll reach Him through The Word.

who are oppressed, to proclaim the
acceptable year of the Lord."
"Therefore My Father loves Me because
I lay down my life that I might take

This command I have received from my
Father." John 10:17-18
