How can they love Him whom they have not known?
A virgin to a baby boy gave birth.
He spoke in parables of seeds He’d sown
As fully God and fully man on earth.
How can they love Him whom they won’t exalt?
The demoniac bowed and was set free,
He healed the sick, the blind, the dumb, the halt,
The outcasts from His presence wouldn’t flee.
How can they love Him whom they will not fear?
Christ Jesus bore God’s wrath nailed to a tree,
To save the earth held in His heart so dear,
Denied by God His Father finally.
Christ Jesus ever lives, our advocate,
Now risen, down at God’s right hand He’s sat.
