The angels watched in sorrow as
He hung upon the tree.
They knew from the beginning
What the outcome there would be.
The sorrow up in Heaven, if only we could see,
Is changed to celebration because of you and me.
Mystery of mysteries, the world wants to know,
Why such a sacrifice for one He loves so.
Satan was defeated when Jesus died upon the tree.
The newly risen savior brought
Victory to you and me.
All creation marveled as He hung upon the tree.
He knew before they started what
The outcome there would be.
This was a completion of what
Started with Adam and Eve.
Now He's come full circle,
He's come into you and me.
