The skies exploded, towers fell;
The floods came rushing down
And many souls were burned alive;
And many souls were drowned
And others set to marching, marching
Far from house and home.
Where are you now, our Savior dear,
When we are all undone?
They God so loved the world so dear
He cast aside His crown
And cloaked Himself in human shape;
They say that He came down,
And dwelt awhile among us here.
He came on down
Oh, I am here among you now
Tho’ I must pass unseen,
And cannot show why this must be
Nor how I walk between
Your souls and greater dangers
Than you have ever known,
To laugh with you and weep with you,
My people, oh my own.
It’s true, I love the World so dear
I cast aside My crown
And cloak Myself in mystery
So I can come on down
And dwell in and among you now.
I come on down.
