The Chosen One has come to save us!
He came because you sent him, speaks
Only what you told him to speak.
What heavy price you paid to rescue
Our souls from sin and reconcile
Estranged creatures to yourself!
O Present One, be with us — come
Within our midst and in our hearts
Abide, both now and evermore.
Outside yourself, all-sufficient,
You made us, gave us freedom of choice,
Allowed us Will to love or leave.
Remove us from ourselves, O Lord,
That truest blessing might be ours,
To love and know Unselfishness.
