The Great Payment

Have you ever thought it strange

That a baby in a manger

Would be the one who came to set men free

And have you ever stopped to think

About the fact that Heaven’s King

Left His throne to come and die for you and me


You may think it’s fable

He was born in lowly stable

But the story has withstood the test of time

And I thought that you should know

Why I’ve come to love Him so

For I want you to know this Lord of Life


You see, He changed my life

When I came to Him that time

That my life was spinning out of control

He forgave all of my sin

And He put His spirit in

Now He walks with me wherever I may go


Because this baby in the manger

Was no ordinary stranger

But the Son of God who came to earth that day

He shared the Father’s love

And brought healing from above

And He said He was the truth the life the way


His teaching brought division

Put the leaders in derision

They decided that He must be put to death

So they shouted crucify Him

On a cross they railed against Him

And He gave His life in one last gasp of breath


The final price was paid

For the sin of human race

And now we are set free forevermore

And it all began that day

In a stable filled with hay

And a baby who the blessed Mary bore.


This Christmas don’t forget

The great payment for our debt

That was made by that baby in the hay

He was born to die for me

And to set the captive free

Let us celebrate His birth this Christmas day
