The Creator Choosing to Die by Raymond A. Foss

The descending of the Son
God walking the earth
the Creator choosing to die
that we would have heavenly birth

Sacrificing himself
to reconcile us to God
the Savior, the lamb
the living son of God

One and the same
the Father and the Son
going the way of the cross
becoming the sacrifice

Crying in heaven
in the courts of the Lord
the Father weeping
for the terrible cost

God dying, humble
before he would rise again
weeping in heaven
for the sins of man.

Abraham faithful in sacrificing
his first born son Isaac,

with no substitution;
the pain of the Father on Good Friday
when his son died for us.

Christ was the one priest able to make
one sacrifice for all time
