From eternity - one with the Father,
To eternity - united in love.
But three hours apart, forsaken, alone,
Cursed upon a cross.
Three hours apart, by heaven unknown,
Dying for the lost.
And as you commanded, we remember
All you surrendered, with these precious signs:
Your broken body is the bread of life to us,
The blood that you shed, we taste as wine.
Perfect purity, awesome and holy,
Burning purity, untainted by sin.
But you knew the stab, the stain of our lies,
Darkening your heart.
You knew the stab, the pain of our pride,
Tearing you apart.
Total majesty, sovereign creator,
Awesome majesty, sustainer of all.
But humbling yourself, and knowing the price,
You took human form.
Humbling yourself, you gave up your throne,
For a crown of thorns.
