Lyrics: Long before the world began God had a purpose, a glorious plan <br/>To bring to pass immortality and eternal life of man <br/>There would need to be One who would teach, who would love <br/>Who would sacrifice all that He had, the glory giv'n to God above <br/>There was One who offered in the midst of the council in Heaven <br/>To descend from the realms of glory and take upon Him the sins of all men <br/> <br/>Our birth is but a sleep, our birth is a forgetting <br/>But we were there and heard Him say: <br/>Here am I, Here am I, send Me <br/> <br/>Not because of honor. Not because of duty, or glory for Him. <br/>But because He has a perfect love, He came for each of us <br/>With the love of a Father, He allowed His Son to come <br/>To be this supernal offering, So we could then return home. <br/>For God so loved the world that through Him it might be saved <br/>And by His own purpose and loving grace a pathway back to Him would be paved
