Lyrics: I want to learn why Jesus Christ <br/>would come to live on Earth; <br/>why He, who was already God, <br/>would have a mortal birth? <br/>I want to better understand <br/>the Lord's great Sacrifice; <br/>why He should suffer for our sins <br/>and pay that awful price. <br/> <br/>His suff'ring in Gethsemane <br/>I cannot comprehend; <br/>why Christ would drink the cup for me, <br/>His blood and body spend. <br/>He could have stayed in Heav’n above, <br/>but deigned to come down here. <br/>The scriptures teach it was for us; <br/>it’s all becoming clear. <br/> <br/>Had Jesus not fulfilled the plan <br/>presented long ago, <br/>God's fam'ly never could return <br/>but now, that is not so. <br/>And Jesus had a need like us: <br/>to gain a body, too, <br/>thus He’d progress, and we’d progress <br/>and make the plan come true. <br/> <br/>I’ll sing my praises ev'ry day <br/>to Jesus, now on high, <br/>and live my life so I can be <br/>forever by His side, <br/>and be with Father, Mother, too; <br/>to live Eternally <br/>fulfilling all of Father’s plan <br/>prepared for you and me. <br/>
