Prince of Peace

For God so loved the world that He gave His Only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16 (KJV)

He didn't come with jewels and crown,
nor gold and sweet perfume.
He didn't come with platitudes
or shouting death and doom.

He didn't come with angry words
for our transgressions bold.
He came as a helpless baby
for a gentle woman to hold.

He came in human innocence
to learn of life and love.
He came to bear our burdens
from His Father, God above.

He came to share our sorrows
and bear our inner pain.
He came to show us how to love
and bring us peace again.
