Lyrics: I want to learn why Jesus Christ
would come to live on Earth;
why He, who was already God,
would have a mortal birth?
I want to better understand
the Lord's great Sacrifice;
why He should suffer for our sins
and pay that awful price.

His suff'ring in Gethsemane
I cannot comprehend;
why Christ would drink the cup for me,
His blood and body spend.
He could have stayed in Heav’n above,
but deigned to come down here.
The scriptures teach it was for us;
it’s all becoming clear.

Had Jesus not fulfilled the plan
presented long ago,
God's fam'ly never could return
but now, that is not so.
And Jesus had a need like us:
to gain a body, too,
thus He’d progress, and we’d progress
and make the plan come true.

I’ll sing my praises ev'ry day
to Jesus, now on high,
and live my life so I can be
forever by His side,
and be with Father, Mother, too;
to live Eternally
fulfilling all of Father’s plan
prepared for you and me.
