The face of love is gazing down upon us

Compassion of our Saviour, affection of a Friend

He didn't come to bring us condemnation

But to pour out his life unto the end.


And in his eyes we see the tears of anguish

The overwhelming sorrow, oh how can we begin

To understand the depth of desolation

When for our sake the sinless became sin?


But from his mouth we hear no words of protest

He bears it all in silence, authority is his.

He prays "Forgive them, Father" when they mock him.

How can there be a greater love than this?


The face of love is gazing down upon us

In triumph "It is finished", he cries the victory won

In Jesus' death, the curse of death defeated

In his new life, eternal life begun.
