Our Savior

A poem by Frances Gregory Pasch

In fulfillment of the Scriptures
Jesus came to earth,
Not as a man, but as a child,
His was a humble birth.

There were no crowds to greet him,
No party nor fanfare,
Just a simple setting,
He entered unaware.

But the reason for his coming
is one that must be told…
He’s the key to our salvation,
Prophesied from days of old.

He took on human nature
So he could bear our sin
Upon the cross, in place of us,
Eternal life to win.

What greater gift could we receive
Than his abounding grace…
The promise that we will one day share
His presence face to face
