Mystery

A song I want to share with you is one that I recently discovered on Selah’s Christmas CD – “Rose of Bethlehem”. It is an AWESOME CD and one I would recommend if you were looking for something new. The lyrics to the song “Mystery” really stuck with me from the first moment I heard the song. I am really a music person – I love singing and Christian music especially touches my soul – causes me to “think” about the message.

“Mystery” talks about how God knew He would have to send His Son to save a fallen world, and yet He still created man. Knowing the sacrifice He would have to make for a sinner such as myself. The concept is overwhelming and something that I really want to try and reflect on during this season. The true magnitude of the gift of the Child – a gift freely given to me, to us by a Father that loves more than I can comprehend.

Mystery” by Selah

A child was born on Christmas Day
Born to save the world
But long before the world began
He knew His death was sure
The pain and strife secured

Mystery, how He came
To be a man
But greater still
How His death was in His plan
God predestined that His Son would die
And He still created man
Oh, what love is this
That His death was in His hands?

The Christmas trees
They glow so bright
With presents all around
But Christmas brought
A tree of life
With blood that sacrificed
The greatest gift in life

Mystery, how He came
To be a man
But greater still
How His death was in His plan
God predestined that His Son would die
And He still created man
Oh, what love is this
That His death was in His hands

I am just a man that
Cant begin to comprehend
When You look into this traitor’s eyes
What do You see that justifies the Lamb?

God predestined that His Son would die
And He still created man
Oh, what love is this
That His death was in His plan
Mystery, mystery
