lyrics

In heaven, in the precious trinity,
There the stars sang out together in the young eternity.
His was beauty, His was infinite strength ,
Yet the Father, Son and Spirit set to save humanity.

The Creator, what appalling mystery.
How the Breath of Life, the Word of Truth became a human being
Found in weakness, loved his God obediently.
The Almighty, lowest servant, came to wash his people’s feet.

It’s the long way down, That the Light of light from heaven, midst the filth of men be found.
It’s the long way down, Not caring for his splendor he took, the long way down.

Rejected, even by his family,
People used, misunderstood and scorned him as a novelty.
The beat him, hating his authority,
Yelling, “Crucify this Christ, we do not want him as our king!"

It’s the long way down, His the body broken for us, his the cup for us poured out
It’s the long way down, The Most Holy died for sinners, It’s the long way down.

Through the - humiliation, in the - deepest of realms
Jesus - was raised victorious, over - sin and death and hell
Every – knee’ll bow before him, every – tongue’ll bless his name
We were raised - with him, to heav’n above
To the praise – of his enduring love.

I love him, for all he has done for me,
All forgiveness, grace and mercy, mine, and him above all things.
All his riches, that he's given vast and free,
Let me give up all for others good and make our joy complete.

It’s the long way down, To lose myself, take up my cross, for there his peace is abounds.
It’s the long way down, The treasure of salvation, It’s the long way down.
It’s the long way down, It’s Jesus Christ I follow, on the long way down.
