Jesus Christ, Our Savior

"Jesus Christ, Our Savior"


Jesus Christ, Our Savior

Verse 1
Jesus Christ, our Savior
Brought us hope into the world
A babe laid in a manger
A prophecy fulfilled
There were shepherds in the fields 
And angels all around
Glory came from heaven
A King that would astound

Verse 2
Fully God, yet human
Jesus walked upon the earth 
Through parables and preaching 
Christ’s ministry was birthed 
Power and authority
Were given and proclaimed
Yet the people doubted
And Jesus was betrayed

Verse 3
Jesus Christ, our Savior 
Was rejected and despised 
The people hid their faces 
And never realized
God had given them a King 
To set all people free 
Majesty escaped them
For they did not believe

Verse 4
Stricken and afflicted
Christ was ridiculed and mocked 
And like a lamb for slaughter 
Christ hung upon the cross
Oh, the suffering of the one 
Whose blood has made us whole 
Pierced for our transgressions 
Forgiveness for each soul

Verse 5
We, like sheep, have wandered 
And we’ve often strayed too far 
But Jesus claims our wounds and 
Erases every scar
What a gift God’s given us 
If only we believe
Jesus is our Savior
For all eternity

About this Hymn:  My desire in writing this hymn was to portray and capture the essence of our Savior's life.  When singing this hymn, it takes us on a journey of the life of Jesus.  The final verse reminds us that although we are not perfect, we can receive God's gift of salvation and eternal life by believing and accepting Christ as our Lord and Savior.
