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?
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.
