Hymn/Song Information

The great Creator of the worlds




The great Creator of the worlds,
the sovereign God of heaven,
his holy and immortal truth
to all on earth hath given.


He sent no angel of his host
to bear this mighty word,
but him through whom the worlds were made,
the everlasting Lord.


He sent him not in wrath and power,
but grace and peace to bring;
in kindness, as a king might send
his son, himself a king.


He sent him down as sending God;
in flesh to us he came;
as one with us he dwelt with us,
and bore a human name.


He came as Savior to his own,
the way of love he trod;
he came to win us by good will,
for force is not of God.


Not to oppress, but summon all
their truest life to find,
in love God sent his Son to save,
not to condemn mankind.
