Before the earth and sun and stars He was;
Created everything with love and grace;
Before the first was written knew the laws;
Ere Adam breathed He knew the human race.
He also knew the sin that would abound
To keep the soul of man apart from God;
He knew He had to come to earth uncrowned,
To be a man not knowing sin or fraud.
He had to live a life unblemished so,
The perfect sacrifice for sin undone.
He knew that on the cross His blood would flow
And when He died salvation thus begun.
This man we know as Jesus knew that He
Would give us hope through Him to set us free.
And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins;
and in him is no sin.
1 John 3:5 KJV
