Constanza

by Angela Umphers Rueger

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever. —Hebrews 13:8

My Savior, Jesus Christ, His name
Though many friends have I, there is
No other name so dear as His

From heaven’s height to earth He came
He shed His robe of deity
To take upon humanity

He wanted neither wealth nor fame
A stranger in the land He made
Though He was God, yet to God prayed

He raised the dead and healed the lame
Touched blinded eyes and made them see
From hell’s domain set many free

Endured the cross, despising shame
Humility was His renown
His royalty, a thorny crown

He paid sin’s debt and took my blame
The debt that I could never pay
Now all my sins are washed away

From age to age, He’s still the same
My great Redeemer, Savior, King
To Him I owe my everything
