The Mission

To seek and save

Those who are lost

The trodden down

The tempest tossed

Who stumble to

The killing floor

For these you gave

Yourself and more

The darkness can

Not comprehend

Why you would suffer

For a friend

Or that yourself

You would not save

And enemies

Freely forgave

You broke the power

Of death and sin

And rose to bring

Your children in
