(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)
God incarnate, Jesus came,
Sinful mankind to reclaim;
Born to save us from our sin,
Born to give us life within.
God incarnate, Jesus died,
On the cross was crucified,
Paid the sin-debt so that we
Could be pardoned full and free.
God incarnate, Christ arose,
Conquered death and all our foes;
Banished all our fear and dread,
Gave us peace and hope instead.
