Born in a stable where animals feed,

Divinely conceived and of virgin birth.

He never committed any wrong deed,

But came to bring salvation to the earth.

But by us, this blameless hero is killed,

And sin's wage ultimately satisfied.

The blood of the innocent one is spilled,

And sins forgiven through this deicide.

He did not have to allow it to be,

But he let his body be cut and sliced.

All just so us sinful mortals could see

The everlasting love of Jesus Christ.

Then three days later he rose from the dead,

So we'd be forgiven, just as he said.
