Into a world of war and struggle

Into a world of war and struggle,
born in a shed where cattle trod,
born of a woman, flesh, yet sinless,
come to redeem us to our God.
Mercy and truth are met together;
righteousness and peace each other kiss.
God come to earth, a tiny baby;
mystery all! What love is this?

2 Who would believe that men could hate him;
all the tender grace of God displayed?
Wounded and bruised for our transgressions,
led like a lamb, for sin he paid.
Mercy and truth are met together;
righteousness and peace each other kiss.
God come to earth, a suffering Servant;
mystery all! What love is this?

3 Down in the grave the mystery deepens;
stone rolled away, the Saviour lives.
Sin’s mortal wages paid in total,
life is the gift our Father gives.
Mercy and truth are met together;
righteousness and peace each other kiss.
Justification, resurrection;
mystery all! What love is this?

4 Coming the day when all shall see him,
every knee shall bow and all confess
he is the Lord and we shall know him;
he is the Lord our righteousness.
Mercy and truth are met together;
righteousness and peace each other kiss.
God come to earth, the Lord of glory,
mystery all! What love is this?
