Through the Prince Not Proud

The one who gave life, entered into life.
The one who spoke the curse of death took the curse of death.
The one who defines good and evil, who is nothing but good, took evil on himself.
The holy one gave himself for the unholy,
The righteous for the unrighteous,
The undying for the dead.

The Son of God became a son of man
So the sons of men could become sons of God.

The one who made everything was unmade so that we might be remade.
The Creator entered the creation to be killed by creatures so he could roll back death and bring about the new creation.

Death could not hold him.
Sin could not stain him.
Hell will not stand against him.
You will not outrun him.

Jesus will reign!

God has answered Satan’s shout of triumph with the baby’s cry.

God has brought proud Satan low

through the prince not proud
born on the night not silent
in the stable not clean
to the heir not honored
with majesty not recognized
by those who will not repent
but beheld by those who are naught in the eyes of the world.

The babe has been born
The dragon defeated
Salvation accomplished
Good news has come
Will you believe it?

The word became flesh, and tabernacled among us. We have seen his glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth (John 1:14).
