He Still Came Down

HE STILL CAME DOWN

VERSE 1: Imagine, if you will, a scene in heaven

 

Where the angels gather ‘round the Savior’s throne.

 

He’s preparing to attempt the greatest rescue

 

The heavens and the earth have ever known.

 

Far beyond the sphere of Glory they are dying

 

In a lost and lonely world that knows no hope.

 

The angels, one by one, approach King Jesus:

 

“Do you realize the danger? Do you know?

 

 

 

CHORUS 1: And are you still going down

 

Knowing all that lies before you?

 

There’s poison and pain, man’s rejection and blame,

 

It could even cost Your life!”

 

But He never paused a moment

 

As He stepped into the realm of this old world.

 

He alone could offer hope. Tell the angels it’s so,

 

He’s still going down!

 

 

 

VERSE 2: Now, I don’t know if such a scene transpired.

 

I don’t know if angels spoke to Him that day.

 

But if, indeed, the conversation happened

 

Well, I know the answer Jesus gave.

 

 

 

BRIDGE: For the angels bent low in the night sky below

 

To witness Jesus’ birth.

 

They spread the good news, their chorus grew:

 

Glory to God! Peace to earth!

 

 

 

CHORUS 2: For Jesus came down

 

Knowing all that lie before Him.

 

Poison and pain, man’s rejection and blame,

 

Why, He even gave His life.

 

And He never paused a moment

 

As He stepped into the realm of this old world.

 

He alone could break through. With everything He knew

 

He still came down!

 

 

 

TAG: Now, imagine, if you will, the scene in heaven

 

As the angels gather ‘round the Savior’s throne.
