"If Not For Love" reminds us at the Christmas season that without the Love of Christ, a love that made Him willing to submit to mortality, all would be lost.
If not for love, what then would send
The Son of God to dwell with men?
To leave His Father’s gracious throne
And wander earth without a home?
If not for love, why then would He,
The Lord of all, become a baby
And walk among the sons of men?
If not for love what then?
A manger in a cave,
The King of Kings no castle knows.
Swaddling rags for royal robes,
While at the inn the people sleep.
While shepherds guard their sheep
A sudden glory breaks the night
Feels the air with song and light
"The child is born; Immanuel!"
One newly shining star
Summons wise men who will bring
Gifts to crown the baby king
Of gold and frankincense and myrrh.
And while the weary world
Winds its way without a pause
In their midst the Son of God;
His life a sacrifice for love.
