Kinsman Redeemer


How could it be, Kinsman Redeemer?
You left Heaven’s splendor,
pierced through the cold darkness
of this world, and came as
a babe on that night so long ago. 
You are the Eternal God who spoke
the world into being!
How could it be most precious

 Passover Lamb of God,
slain before the foundation
 of the world?

Your body and blood were enough
to forgive our sins
 and reconcile us to fellowship with God!

How could it be Lord Jesus?
Death and hell could not hold the
only begotten Son of God.
You rose from the dead and ascended
back to the father, where you 
now live to make
 intercession for your children!   

And in my heart, Truth whispers,
My child, I love you and it was for you I died.
Love’s full redemption price was paid in full
through the mercy and grace of Jesus Christ,
our loving Kinsman Redeemer! 

Spread the corner of your garment over your handmaid, for you are a redeeming kinsman. Ruth 3:9

For God so loved the world, He gave His only begotten son, so that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16
