"Fullness of Grace"
This week’s song feature is a powerful meditation by Keith and Kristyn Getty. Though this is not a worship song in the sense that you’d want to sing it in a congregational setting, on a personal level, the melody and lyrics stir the heart to ponder and meditate on the great sacrifice of our Savior.
Focused on Christ, this song journeys through what Jesus left behind when He came to earth that fateful night. He who once sat in glory became a frail human baby. The Creator became like His creation. He walked among us. He felt our pain, struggled with our battles, and experienced the harsh realities of the fallen world we live in. The One who is above all things walked the road to Calvary and willingly took our punishment upon Himself. He is the one our hearts adore and in Him is our eternal hope. Oh, worship our wonderful Savior!
So as we march closer and closer to Christmas and all the joy, expectation, festivity, and merriment it brings, let us not forget the One whom it’s all about. Therefore, this week let us meditate and ponder this song, “Fullness of Grace.”
“Fullness of Grace in man’s human frailty
This is the wonder of Jesus
Laying aside His power and glory
Humbly He entered our world
Chose the path of meanest worth
Scandal of a virgin birth
Born in a stable cold and rejected
Here lies the hope of the world
Fullness of Grace the love of the Father
Shown in the face of Jesus
Stooping to bear the weight of humanity
Walking the Calvary road
Christ the holy Innocent
Took our sin and punishment
Fullness of God despised and rejected
Crushed for the sins of the world
Fullness of hope in Christ we had longed for
Promise of God in Jesus
Through His obedience we are forgiven
Opening the floodgates of heaven
All our hopes and dreams we bring
Gladly as an offering
Fullness of life and joy unspeakable
God’s gift in love to the world”
